Children of all ages interested in taking the bait and learning how to cast a rod can do so through a program offered by the Kingsport Parks and Recreation Department.
Throughout the month of June, the department will be offering Fishing 101 – a four-week program that will teach children the basics of fishing, including how to bait a hook, tie knots and what bait can be used to catch certain fish.
The sessions will take place every Tuesday in June (6, 13, 20 and 27) from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Allandale Mansion ponds. The cost is $30 per person and the fee includes bait and the four instructional sessions. Participants will have to bring their own rods.
To register for this program, click on the CivicRec link in the Connect Kingsport app or go to www.kingsporttn.gov and click on the “CivicRec” link, then search for “fishing” in the search bar.
