For the fifth year in a row, the Brazil City Parks Board conducted its annual Fishing Fun Day, a morning where members of the community can bring their children to the park and catch fish while having a Pepsi and a hot dog.
"Every year it gets better," Supt. of Parks Bill Houck said. "It is so wonderful to see the park being used like this."
Many of the children learned how to bait a hook and a few caught something bigger than a fish.
"This is my second fish, the first fell off the hook and then I got a turtle," Ashlee Barger, 9, Greencastle said. "This is my first time and I'm having fun."
"It's been really nice and she's having a good time," mother Angie Barger added.
Ashlee wasn't the only person that had problems keeping her fish on the hook.
Luke Pierce, 5, Brazil, son of Lori and Steve Pierce caught the first fish of the day, while he was having his picture taken, the fish decided it didn't want to stay on the hook.
"It's a good bluegill," he said. "It just wants to go swimming."
Though Luke had a mishap with the fish, he went to a different spot and went right back to fishing.
"He's having so much fun," Lori said. "This is great and it is wonderful they do it for the kids."
When a hook needed baited or a fish need to be caught once it got off the hook, Larry Clark was the man that was called.
"This is a huge success," he said. "It really gives kids the opportunity to fish that don't usually have it."
With approximately 90 children registered to receive gifts with one parent per child the board is estimating at least 150-200 people in attendance.
"We are very pleased with the turnout, and I think it was our most successful so far," Parks Board President Ruth Ann Jeffries said. "I am so glad to see the parents with the children and everyone had a good time."
