* Learn about fly tying and casting.
* Practice your casting skills in the Kids Casting Area.
* Buy your PA fishing license, posters, patches, and books.
* Visit the boating safety tent to stay current on boating regulations.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken

Thanks Dave, I took my last college class at Pymatuning Lab. of Ecology and spent 5 weeks in and around Linesville but never went to the hatchery. We'll have some young ones up for Easter. Maybe that's something we can do. Heck we cold dump the girls off at Grove City...
