Fly Fishing, Grouse Hunting and Fine Bird Dogs Spoken Here!

It was all about kids!


Yesterday the Huron Point Sportsman’s Association held their annual Heritage Day Festival at their facility on 28 Mile Rd. just east of Gratiot. I participated on behalf of the Michigan Fly Fishing Club, giving kids a taste of fly tying. It was great.

The entire day’s activities revolved around introducing kids to the shooting sports (rifle, shotgun and archery) as well as hands-on crafts and of course, a primer on fly tying.

The day began at 9am and ended around 5pm. Kids with their parents, grandparents and other relatives filled the grounds and got hands-on instruction to, not only shooting, but how to make arrows and other necessities for those sports …and the enthusiasm of both the kids and those putting on the event was amazing.

Kudos to the Huron Point Sportsman’s Association for realizing that kids are the future of these sports and they can be a family event.
