Go Fish with Chuck Martin

I’ve written about the fun and importance of introducing kids to fishing, but I thought of it again the other day when I saw an article about the Division of Wildlife wanting to emphasize programs to “recruit” more hunters and anglers.

Programs to teach people about fishing and hunting are fine, but the best way to recruit anglers is to take kids fishing. Most anglers I know are thinking about where they plan to be fishing this spring.

Well, think about some trips with the kids or grandkids. They don’t have to be long, they don’t have to be elaborate. The kid just has to have fun.
