Children’s Fishing Day “Andreas and Nadia Demetriou” – 16/06/2018
The annual Children’s Fishing Day Event took place on June 16th, 2018 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 A.Stylianides Hunting & Fishing 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 2018 sponsors, Moondog’s, Presse Cafe Cyprus, EyeSpotCyprus and ASJ Fishing Tackle (Fisher Mania). 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.
