This month, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s will be featuring two weekends full of free, family-friendly activities.
Gone Fishing, a nationwide movement created by Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris, is an attempt to challenge families to put down their digital devices and get outside this summer to discover the joys of fishing.
The Gone Fishing events will take place on June 9-10 and June 16-17.
At the events, children can fish at catch and release ponds from 1 to 4 p.m. There will also be craft tables available for kids at this time
Attendees can also participate in free fishing seminars and there will be giveaways throughout the events.
Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s are also donating 50,000 rods and reels nationwide to nonprofit organizations to help connect more kids to the great outdoors.
