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!"
