Pond Hopper Nation is teaming with professional angler Roy Hawk to help make fishing dreams come true for youth who otherwise might not have the opportunity to experience their first catch.

The goal is to sponsor 100 youth by outfitting them with their own fishing rod and tackle box for the inaugural Teach a Child to Fish Day to be held from 9am to 3pm on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at Lake Havasu’s Mesquite Bay North (map) fishing dock.

The event is open to all youth and teens who are at least 4 years of age regardless of their fishing experience; there is no cost to participate in the event.

To help a child to explore fishing as a pastime and to help spread love and passion for fishing, e-mail pondhoppernation@gmail.com to make a donation.
