On Tuesday, March 21st, it may have been a cold dreary day outside but, Captain Greg Karch of Learn 2 Fish With Us and National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) had fun inside teaching fourth graders the Fishing Basics. Captain Greg hosted two Fishing Basics seminars at Omro Elementary for over seventy students where they learned about the equipment and skills needed to begin fishing through the interactive seminar!! They learned; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, how to cast safely and accurately, simple fishing presentations, how to tie the Clinch and Palomar knot, fish identification, live and artificial bait, aquatic invasive species and so much more.
This was the second year of Learn 2 Fish With Us hosting fishing seminars at Omro Elementary. Dave, the principle along with the teachers of Omro Elementary were so happy to have us back as they feel we have a fun and educational program.
Thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association, Shakespeare, Mercury Marine and Learn 2 Fish With Us, each student received a NPAA Future Pro Shirt and fishing educational book.
