Don Langston, the secretary of the HSV Anglers Club, joins us today. Don and his wife moved to Hot Springs Village almost 18 years ago. He puts his fishing boat in one of the many lakes inside the Village multiple times each week. Don shares information about fishing inside Hot Springs Village. He also tells us about some of the specific activities of the HSV Anglers Club.
Here are some details about the club, as posted on their website…
The HSV Anglers Club is one of the oldest organized clubs in the Village. It all started back in 1973 when some village men fished with the Jessieville Bass Club. This small group decided to start a fishing organization in the Village. It is important to note that membership includes female anglers. The purpose of the club is to promote fellowship through fishing, improve fishing skills, and support the improvement of village lakes. You do not need a boat to be a member.
