The Good News Is... Free fishing in Concord

CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - Not much beats a nice breezy spring day, unless you're enjoying a breezy spring day with a lazy line floating in the water.

Fishing might just be one of the most relaxing sports around. The good people at Cabarrus County Parks have arranged it so you can fish their ponds for free.

Frank Liske park in Concord is just one of the sites where park officials will loan you a rod and reel and throw in a tackle box to boot; for free.

Park Rangers say mostly kids benefit from the program but anyone who wants a set of loaner gear is entitled, you just have to leave your license while you fish.
