Bluewater Anglers taught kids the tricks of the trade Saturday

Under the guidance of veteran anglers, the seven-year-old Sarnia boy managed to reel in his first fish – a rainbow trout – all while wearing his ‘lucky’ blue hat that he saved from the St. Clair River last summer.

“His hat fell into the water, so we had to use the rod to get it out,” his grandfather Paul Chivers recalled Saturday.

Even though Lester didn’t catch any fish that day, Chivers said his grandson thought his one catch – his hat – may send good vibes his way when he tried fishing again Saturday.
