Hanover County Parks and Recreation, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Virginia Fishing Adventures and Bass Pro present the annual Taylor’s Pirate Fishing FUN event on Saturday, June 3, 2017. From 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. the pond at Courthouse Park will be swimming with excitement.

Taylor, the Parks and Recreation mascot, has his pirate costume on and is ready for some Pirate Fishing FUN! Pirates age 12 and under will also have the opportunity to make a craft project and get a pirate tattoo in the "Children’s Cove". He’s also bringing his large inflatable pirate ship for you to play in, just in case the fish aren’t biting.

Fishing professionals will be on-hand to assist all young pirates in their fishing adventures. No fishing license or registration is required for this family event for children interested in fishing. This catch and release fishing experience is the perfect way to get your child hooked on fishing or just to enjoy the beautiful evening casting with your loved ones. Bait and rods will be available on a first come, first served basis, but if you have your own, please bring it.

Heave ho on over for a splashing good time, the fish will be waiting!
