Sun and smiles as kids enjoy Take a Kid Fishing (with video)


BEMIDJI -- After last year's Take a Kid Fishing event fought through rain, the 26th annual event brought just as much sun as it did fish and young smiling faces.

"Most of us are trying to give back a little bit," Take a Kid Fishing Committee member Jo Clayton said. "We've had fishing as part of our lives, and we think it is a very healthy lifestyle."

This year's event brought in 135 kids ranging in age from 10 to 15, with 82 guides to teach them the art of fishing.
