Including kids (and their friends) in your fishing trips can not only make memories but also teach them to protect the environment.
Memories are not made by playing video games. Disconnect electronics and reconnect with your kids on a fishing adventure! Kids get immediate gratification from the abundance of technology.
Purposefully plan time for kids to experience the majesty of Mother Nature. If we don’t show them, who will?
And, it’s true: You don’t know what you have until it’s gone. One of the most important concepts that can be cultivated through fishing is that the Earth needs to be taken care of in order to preserve its beauty.
Teaching kids to fish allows them to commune with the elements. Once they have had fun and success on and around the water, there is a greater chance that they won’t litter or be wasteful, and that they will become active in protecting the environment.
Make it a point to take your kids fishing this year. Even try to take their friends. It will build memories that last a lifetime.
