DAVIS COUNTY, Utah – It was “Zombie Fishing” day at Willow Pond Saturday, and the event is the work of twin brothers who decided they wanted to encourage their fellow teens to get off the couch and enjoy the outdoors.

A.J. and Jace Garcia founded “Twin Territory” after they invited friends to go fly fishing but found their peers preferred to stay home and play video games.

“On our video game, it would show how long our friends have been on for, and sometimes they would be on for the whole day,” Jace Garcia said. “And it’s just kind of sad that they don’t want to come and experience what Utah has to offer.”

The Garcia twins have found partners in outdoor companies like Camp Chef and Cabela’s, who donate outdoor equipment to the cause. On Saturday, those who came out were able to exchange new or used video games for a fishing pole.

The video games collected at the event will in turn be given to Primary Children’s Hospital.
