'Hooked on Fishing' draws large crowds



For some, the nibble at the end of the line was just a slight motion that often ended with the bait being taken off the hook but no fish in sight. For others, the movement at the end of the line ensured a real catch.

The Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs campaign has been a crowd drawer so far this year. Organizers said the first fishing event in June brought out close to 100 people — the highest attendance in two years. Approximately 70 attended Tuesday.

Hooked on Fishing is free for children, and they must be accompanied by an adult. The next Hooked on Fishing event is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 6 at 5:30 p.m. at Heritage Hills lake.
