THE Saipan Fishermen’s Association’s “Tasi to Table” Youth Fishing Club members each received a rod and reel combo and a t-shirt from Saipan Fishing Tackle & Sporting Goods on Saturday.

The fishing equipment will help the students prepare for the shoreline casting tournament set for Jan. 25, 2020, said Alex Castro, SFA community outreach coordinator.

The students who received the donations are from Saipan Southern High School, Marianas High School, Kagman High School, and Da’ok Academy.

Katherine and Pierre Lam, Saipan Fishing Tackle & Sporting Goods owners, thanked the students and their advisors for supporting the family-run business.

“Without your support we could not have stayed long enough in this business,” Katherine Lam said.

“With all the distractions that we have every day, time spent fishing is well spent time,” she told the students.

And the next best thing to fishing is sharing that joy of fishing with others, she added.

Also on Saturday, the Youth Fishing Club members learned spooling and setting up their rod and reel as well as tying hooks, swivels, and sinkers.

Gov. Ralph DLG Torres, for his part, encouraged the students to continue pursuing their passion for fishing while appreciating and taking care of the island’s natural resources.

“What we put in it is what we are going to get out of it,” Torres added.
