Wal-Mart Take A Kid Fishing Day ALWAYS
By Ed Snyder

Wal-Mart Take A Kid Fishing Day
Saturday, June 2, 2001, Wal-Mart Super Store, Jasper, TX.

"Oops, watch-out, cast over here, not there, easy does it kiddo, just flip it lightly to the target in front of you, "OOPS" watch-out behind y'all!! "These were the words of activity going on within the Super Wal-Mart Store in Jasper, TX, during the early morning hours of Saturday, June 2nd. "But, as the Bass/Pro's and local lake area professional anglers arrived to take charge the words of activity seemed to take on a more professional quality with the, "Oops, watch-out, cast over here, not there, easy does it kiddo, just flip it lightly to the target in front of you, "OOPS" watch-out behind y'all!!

"This is our finest hour explained the Wal-Mart official who was helping the Bass/Pro's and Wal-Mart staff with the 100 -plus- children and family members who came by the Sporting Goods Department to have some fun, because these kids who're learning these fishing skills here today will be our future anglers of tomorrow.

And so it went from 9:am to Noon on Saturday, June 2nd at The Wal-Mart Super Store in Jasper TX, as visiting families enjoyed the "special" Wal-Mart Take a Kid Fishing Day. Events included hands on casting, flipping, and pitching skills learned from some our Sport-fishing Industries finest professional anglers such as Jasper TX, BASS/Pro and Classic Angler Todd Faircloth, Sam Rayburn BASS/Pro and Mega-Bucks Champion David Wharton, Sam Rayburn Bass n'Gal and EverStart Champion Nobie Jo LeBert with Sam Rayburn Pro/Guide Bobby LeBert, Rayburn Anglerette & Texas Whirlwind Baits CEO Patty Schaefer, and Jasper Newsboy Outdoor Writer, Pro/Guide, and BASS/Pro Angler Roger Bacon.
