Trout Day at Hooked on Fishing Park

Tue, March 08, 2011

In conjunction with Nate Herman, I will be hosting a fly fishing day at the Hooked On Fishing park in East Peoria.  We held an event last year and it was a huge success.  This event is being held to raise funds to keep the park running.  The park is designed to allow kids and senior citizens the chance to fish waters that are intensively managed.  The lakes are full of fish, including the spring-fed trout pond that has the biggest trout you will find anywhere in the state.

The event will be held on March 12th from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  Here are the guidelines:

1. Fly fishing only
2. All hooks must have the barb pinched down
3.  Purely catch - photo- and release
4.  A suggested $25 donation will get you into the park (if you can donate more, the park would truly appreciate it).

Here are some photos of last year’s event:

Folks, this is going to be an exciting day.  These trout are big and pull like a Mack truck.  If you are a fly fisherman, make sure you get over to the park and at least spend a few minutes casting for these beautiful Rainbows.


I’m looking forward to it, but need to get busy tying some streamers before Saturday.

Will there be Coosa rides?

Posted by Clif on March 08

yes the Coosa will be there.  If you want to try it, you might want to bring a life jacket.  Not sure mine will fit you.  Anyone in attendance can take it out for a spin.

I can’t wait to see you do one of those “demo twirls,” now that your a Coosa sales rep. it’s part of the deal!

I am not sure I could do those “demo twirls” on solid ground.
