HBAA takes Big Brothers / Big Sisters fishing
HAYS, KS (May 15. 2014) — Members of the Hays Bass Anglers Association guided youth from Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Ellis County as ten youth enjoyed a fun-filled fishing trip at a farm pond, owned by Daryl Augustine, of Hays. “It was a perfect evening for fishing and the kids all had a great time,” said Vern Bailey, HBAA’s youth coordinator. Using worms, the kids enjoyed catching largemouth bass and bluegill. Club members grilled hotdogs for the kids before heading down to the pond to go fishing. The youth fishing program is an annual event for the club.
