This past Friday, March 22nd, Certified Angler Educator Greg Karch with Learn 2 Fish With Us and NPAA Member #138, hosted a fishing seminar to introduce Woodland Elementary third graders to the Fishing Basics. Woodland Elementary Is located in Kimberly, Wisconsin. During the seminar Greg educated the students on all the skills and equipment needed to fish such as: safety while fishing, fishing combos, casting, fishing presentations, knots, bait fish identification, the environment and the Clean Drain Dry message. During the seminar, Greg had asked for volunteers to come up front and personally learn the skill. Greg mentioned, it is so important for the youth to know they can cast or tie a knot as this gives them the confidence to do the skill when they are on their own. Thanks to the NPAA each third grader went home with a Future Pro shirt.
