Fishin' Kids

Kids love to fish ... but first you have to ask them, show them, and then teach them.
  • It's something that gets them outdoors into the fresh air;
  • It's something to get them out from in front of the computer;
  • It's something that teaches them about conservation and the environment;
  • It's something that every child can equally compete in;
  • It's something for the family to do together;
  • It's something different to do on your next vacation;
  • It's something less expensive than most theme parks;
  • It's something that they'll remember for a lifetime;
  • It's something that they'll teach their children.

Just look at the faces on some of these kids we've had out fishing and try to tell me that they're not having fun!

You know the old saying ... give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day ... teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime.

Well, the same goes for our kids ... and most kids that really get involved with fishing DON'T get involved with drugs, are less likely to get in trouble with the law, and generally do better in school. Try to do your part as a parent, grandparent, big brother, big sister, or even just a friend to get today's kids involved in fishing.

It's probably one of the least expensive hobbies to get started. All you need is a rod, reel, lure ... add water with fish in it and you've got a perfect recipe for FUN!

You never know ...

you might just find out that you DO have something in common with your kids

... a love for FISHING!!!

Bass fishing has been in my family for as long as I can remember. My dad made his own flies and lures. They were the best around. I can remember going and getting in his tackle box and getting out his scented fishes that he used to fish with and play with them. They all had different scents to them also. When I was about 5 yrs old my daddy took me fishing and I out fished him. Mine may have been smaller but I had more... I believe that made my dad happy and sad all at the same time. Happy that his baby girl could fish and sad because I had more than him. I love my dad and he loves to fish.. Any guess who this wonderful man is well.... he is The one and only " Happy Fisherman" or also known as Capt "Marvel"...
I love you dad.
