In this episode, Brian is on-site at the Pickering Family Fishing Day at Progress Park  on Frenchman’s Bay in Pickering. Brian has Deputy Mayor Doug Dickerson, Vern Mason from the Pickering Rod and Gun Club, and Brianne - one of the youth fishing on July 13th. Urban Fishing is alive and well in Pickering. 

Episode Notes

In its 27th year, the Pickering Family Fishing Day was a great success. With 106 registrants under the age of 14 years old, along with parents and older siblings, this event has grown over the past few years in popularity.

Pickering’s Deputy Mayor Doug Dickerson, was on-hand assisting the new anglers, from baiting their hooks, to helping cast into the water. It is not everyday a youth can fish in their city with the Deputy Mayor as their fishing partner and teacher. Doug Dickerson admits that he is a long time supporter of the Pickering Rod and Gun Club and his actions during this event provide solid proof of his backing. Without volunteers this event could not possibly happen.

Vern Mason, the Past President of the Pickering Rod and Gun Club, describes how the event has been around 27 years which originated in Scarborough before moving to Pickering. With many sponsors and supporters, volunteers and of course interested youth 14 years of age and younger, this event keeps gaining popularity.

This event is brought to you by the Ministry of Natural Resources, Muskies Canada, City of Pickering, Pickering Rod and Gun Club and the Federation of Anglers and Hunters.
