PTBOPics: OFAH's New Canadians Day Included Father & Son's First Fishing Experience

July 6th to 14th was Ontario Family Fishing Week, an annual opportunity for Canadian citizens to experience fishing without a license. In Peterborough, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters hosted a variety of events to mark the occasion, including a "Learn to Fish" workshop at Beavermead Campground and a special event for New Canadians Centre clients at the OFAH. Here's some pics...
