When Mark Hyman took over leading Rising Sun's annual Youth Fishing Derby, he and his wife, Donna were the parents of two children.
Fast forward 14 years and Hyman, now has a third child, John, 12, who helps with the derby.
"I look forward to it. I can't give it up now. It's part of me," said Hyman, who took over coordinating the derby from Jesse Cox. This year, the event is set for Saturday, May 5 at the pond on West Main Street. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. Fishing begins at 8 a.m. and continues until 11 a.m. Those who want to have all paperwork in order prior to the event, may obtain the permission forms from the Rising Sun Fishing Derby facebook page.
