One of my readers left a comment on a recent post about taking a kid fishing in 2009. Not only is this a good idea but should be a major " things do list item" for every fisherman or woman this year.

I promoted this in 2008 and , well, lets do it again! Kids are the future bass fishermen of the future and we should participate in the teaching and education of the next generation of bass fishermen and women.

I challenge each and everyone of you to take at least one kid fishing this year and teach them the do's and don'ts of fishing. Not only how to, but the laws of fishing and fishing etiquette too!

While competition is great, learning how to be a good sport is essential for the proper development of the next generation of fishermen and women! While everyone likes to win, learning to lose with style and good sportsmanship and winning with good sportsmanship is vital to the future of fishing.

Remember to teach them how to fish and how to fish while respecting the laws and the rights of others. This is very important on our waterways today. Fishing and boating etiquette is very important for our kids and the future of fishing.

Take a kid fishing in 2009 and you will be rewarded for your efforts! A day on the water with a kid is entertaining and fun, so do your part in 2009 and take a kid fishing.

Keep your hooks wet and see ya out there with your kids and have fun fishing in 2009! Enjoy the "Great Outdoors!"

The club I belong to now has a kids fishing derby every spring so I will be taking my 6 year old son to that.

Even if you do not have kids of your own this is a great challenge. I try to plan a few trips a year where I just take kids from the neighborhood. It is a wonderful experience for me to see their faces light up at catching even the smallest of fish. Just remember they have a .short attention span and plan your trips accordingly

Great post. I think engaging children in this great outdoor activity is a real contrast to what is going on these days. It teaches them tactics, patience and the ability to site quietly and enjoy nature. Another thing that makes fishing a great experience is the bonding factor. Whom ever you go fishing with, you will have a good and interesting time with. It's just a health thing for your soul.
