Windy, but sunny weather, was the theme for this years Kids Learn to Fish Day and the Father’s Day Fishing Derby. There were two full classes of 25 new fishers each and 22 alumni brought their rods and gear to help out with the new groups.

The North Peace Rod and Gun Club and Backcountry would like to express their sincere appreciation for the tireless work by our volunteers and all the sponsors who help make these events such a huge success.
