Dad, mom, the kids, couples, singles, anyone who’s handy with a rod is welcome to join a fun day of fishing in the free fishing derby at Tingley Beach.

Albuquerque’s 5th Annual Free Fishing Derby takes place on Saturday March 12, 2011, from 7 am to 4 pm. If you missed our earlier post on this event, the fishing derby is for all ages, although you need a New Mexico fishing license to take part. The Tingley Beach Outfitters can kit you out with licenses and other fishing gear if you don’t have everything you need already. Check out the Tingley Beach Fishing Licenses and Rules here. 

No point asking me anything about fishing. I love watching people fish at Tingley Beach when I go for a walk there, they always seem so calm and zen-like, but I don’t know the first thing about it myself and I’m not even quite sure what a fishing derby is – it just sounds great fun. Especially as they’ll have food and drinks for sale… well, it’s comfort in case you don’t catch as much as you’d hoped :-)
