Photos: West Seattle Sportsmen’s Club Hi-Yu Kids’ Fishing Derby

Perfect morning at the Seacrest “pond” set up for the annual West Seattle Sportsmen’s Club Hi-Yu Kids’ Fishing Derby – sun and fun. After we stopped by for a few photos, Larry Nitkey sent us this next pic, explaining, “Had a lot of fun fishing. My daughter Leilani Nitkey proudly displays her first-ever catch.”

Since it’s a Hi-Yu event, that means royalty – and in this case, would-be royalty – two Miss Hi-Yu candidates stopped for a photo:

That’s Melanie Frey and Victoria Ferrulli; as reported here Tuesday, they are candidates along with Kelsey Bills, Kelsey Porter, and Rosemarie Anne Ko Unite.

    Thanks so much to the Hi-Yu folks for the great fun this morning! My kids had a blast and we enjoyed a nice trout dinner tonight with their catches. They’ll remember this day for a long time to come!

    I’m a member of the West Seattle Sportsmen’s Club and we really appreciate your positive comments. I would also like to thank everyone that helped with our event this year, including the Miss Hi-Yu Candidates that once again did an outstanding job helping the kids.

    I would especially like to thank all of the parents for taking time out of their busy schedules to bring their kids down to fish.

    We all really enjoy putting this event on. It’s such a wonderful thing to watch the excitement on a child’s face as they catch their fish. In some cases this is their first fish and it will be a life long memory for both them and their parents.

    See you again next year or you can check out our contact info below and maybe visit us sooner.

    Thanks again,

Sorry, comment time is over.
