Fixing Fathers holds Fishing with Dads Event

Fixing Fathers, Inc., held its annual Fishing with Dads event Aug. 31 at Beaver Pond Park, New Haven. Parents and their children were treated to a two-hour informative training session, facilitated by Doreen Abubaker and Loreen Lawrence who are certified instructors for CT Aquatic Resource Education. The families learned about various fish (brook trout, brown trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, brown bullhead, channel catfish, and the Redbreast Sunfish) that cohabitate in the pond as well as gear safety, pond ecology, casting and how to tie a clinch knot. After the training session, each child was able to put what they learned to the test. One of the highlights of the event occurred when a seasoned fisherman promised the children that he would help them catch a fish. After 15 minutes, he ended up catching two fish. A Largemouth Bass and a Brook Trout. Of course, the children informed him that he would have to put the fish back into the pond because, according to their instructors, the fish he caught were too small to keep. Fixing Fathers thanked all parents who attended the event, Dibella’s Subs in Hamden, the mettle entertainment group, and of course, the New Haven Green Fund for sponsoring the event.
