Have you ever wanted to cast a fly right in front of a fish and entice it to bite? How about taking aim at a still or moving target with a bow and arrow?
Take a kid fishing
There are so many ways to enjoy the outdoors, but not many opportunities to learn the skills to enhance the enjoyment. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the Amber Nease Outdoor Education Foundation, and York River State Park will host an event where anyone 7 years old and up can get the "know-how" they have always wanted.
Register now for this event. The cost is $10 per person before 8/31/2012 and $15 after 9/1/2012. For more information and registration, contact Karen Holson by phone at 804-367-6355 or e-mail Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The September Outdoors Skill Sampler will be held at the park on Saturday, September 22nd from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A wide variety of activities will be covered such as air rifle shooting, animal identification, archery, fishing, fly casting, geocaching, hiking, outdoor cooking, and kayaking. The exhibits in the visitor's center will be open as well. Skills will be taught by VDGIF instructors. Park rangers and volunteers will also be on hand to enhance the experience.
