“Really great to share our love of fishing with others. Great for kids and teenagers to get involved and share the love of fishing.” – Fishing Coach, Central Park

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing.
