No one who is even remotely interested in reading this blog would disagree that taking a youngster fishing is a good thing. I’m positive of that. But I go a bit further.
I think that we also need to expose our kids to the possibilities, opportunities and joy fishing can bring, that are beyond those trips to the pond, lake or river. In other words, show them how this wonderful pastime can fit into other aspects of their lives. And if we don’t, we’re doing these young folks a disservice.
