Teaching Someone to Fish


My wife Donna with one of her latest lunkers is pictured above. She teaches people how to fish almost weekly. She is fortunate to work at a resort with a private lake. Donna loves to share tips with children to help them beat seasoned anglers at the resorts weekly fishing tournament.
When helping others learn to fish, always be patient, speak be clearly, and explain why you do the things you are doing to catch fish. Young children lose interest and become bored quickly, keep the day upbeat and fun for your students. If you are willing to go the extra mile and teach catch and release (or cleaning and cooking) you will be rewarded in more ways than you can imagine. Teaching truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
Happy Fishing!
