Youth fishing clinic for children with Mercy Housi
6/4/2019 10:00 am
Colorado Parks and Wildlife, along with guest angler instructor Malik Wilder of FishingForHiphop.com, is hosting a youth fishing clinic for children with Mercy Housing on Tuesday at Lake Lehow in Littleton from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The fishing clinic is being offered to 30 children out of Mercy’s Denver housing locations with transportation, lunch and fishing gear being provided. Each participant will receive a free fishing rod from Wilder after the clinic.
Wilder is flying in from Atlanta to co-host Tuesday’s fishing clinic. An expert fisherman with over 25 years of experience, Wilder’s skill as an angler is only surpassed by his passion for engaging youth participation in fishing and the outdoors. He brings a unique approach to youth engagement, using hip-hop culture as a bridge between something kids already know and love and fishing, an otherwise new and unfamiliar activity.
