Children’s Fishing Day “Andreas and Nadia Demetriou” 2019
The annual Children’s Fishing Day Event took place on June 22nd, 2019 at Athalassa Lake (Agios Georgios Park). The event, which was dedicated to the memory of Andreas and Nandia Demetriou, was very successful, as many fish of all species, were caught, bringing lots of joy to the children. All the fish caught were released carefully back to the lake. In addition to actually fishing, the children had the chance to learn the various fish species of the lakes of Cyprus, how to set up their fishing tackle, and also the importance of practicing Catch and Release.
The Association would like to thank the ASJ Fishing Tackle (Fisher Mania) for providing the rods given to the children. In addition, the Association would like to thank the Cyprus Department of Fisheries and Marine Research, as well as the Department of Forests, for giving us permission to use the park for this event.
Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to our 2019 sponsors, Moondog’s , Presse Cafe Cyprus, EyeSpotCyprus, Kivu Speciality Coffee, Utopia Espresso Cyprus, Beer Shop, Ω My Box Mods, Cyprus Fishing Magazine and The Practice Audit Office.
Special thanks go to EyeSpotCyprus and our friend Kleanthis for providing a pair of children sunglasses which was used in a draw among the participating children.
