Kid's Fishing Day Hosted
Saturday at Pevine Pinion Pond
by: Bobby McDonald
On Saturday, the banks of Peavine Pinion Pond, in Buford Park, was lined with some 200+ local youth, who took advantage of the beautiful spring-like weather and enjoyed a day of fishing. It was the annual Larry Buster Memorial Fishing Day and enjoyed by all. "I don't think we could have picked a more beautiful day!" expressed James Law, a member of the sponsoring Kiwanis Club. "Sometimes the weather can be bitter cold in February, but today is perfect for everyone involved!"
Some 2000 rainbow trout had been released in the small pond by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for the occasion and several of the youth were able to "haul" one of them in. "And, I don't know what it is about a fishing tale, but every time it gets retold that fish gets bigger and bigger!" exclaimed one of the grandmother's that had accompanied her grandson. "They start young, because every time he talks about that fish, it gets long and longer!"
Members of the Hopkins County Longbeard Wild Turkey Club and the Kiwanis Club cooked hotdogs on the grill and distributed a number of fishing related door prizes, so everyone left Peavine Pinion Pond a winner. "We didn't catch anything, but the time spent with my grandson was priceless!" added one grandfather as he left the fishing hole for home. "And, that's what it is all about!"
A Great Day For Fishing......
