The old saying that a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work will be put to the test this Saturday in Bethel. The Upper Andro Anglers in co-operation with Trout Unlimited are hosting a free family fishing festival this Saturday at Angevine Park on the North Road in Bethel.The event is rain or shine from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature free casting workshops and fly-tying instruction. Local Maine guides and members of the Mollyockett Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be teaching the workshops. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will supply complimentary rods and reels for use at the festival.

Families can practice their newly learned casting skills in the one-acre pond and are welcome to keep their catch. The pond will be stocked with trout courtesy of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Each young angler will receive a mini-tackle box complete with bobber, sinkers and hook courtesy of the Upper Andro Anglers Alliance.

There will be door prizes from L.L.Bean, Kittery Trading Post and other local businesses.
