Big Brothers, Big Sisters go fishing with HBAA
Hays, Kansas (May 24, 2018) — Nearly 20 kids gathered at Darrell Augustine’s farm pond on the outskirts of Hays on Thursday to take part in an annual event conducted by members of the Hays Bass Anglers Association designed to introduce youth to the sport of fishing. The event began with a hot dog feed for the kids and shortly after the kids were given their fishing poles and a container of night crawlers as they headed to the pond to try their hand at fishing. Even though the fishing was slow, everyone enjoyed the outing according to HBAA officers. Click here to view the slideshow from the event.
