Welcome to Get Kids Fishing
One of the most popular sports and activities worldwide is fishing. Whether you are young or old, rich or poor, a great activity to try is getting a rod and reel out and putting it into a body of water. The best news when trying fishing is that you do not need to be wealthy to participate. You can just get a simple fishing pole, some bait and have a great time!
Fishing can be a relaxing and fun hobby. Nothing beats sitting on the dock or the shore, with your line in the water waiting for a nibble from a fish. It is something you can do alone or with others. In fact, I got my start when I was five years old going fishing with my Grandfather. I went with him for many years until he passed away five years ago. The love of fishing that I got from my Grandpa has been passed along to my kids, and hopefully their kids in the future.
Our organization has been in existence for over a dozen years. It is our job to help promote fishing to those that are interested in learning more about this hobby. Our duties include writing articles about fishing and related activities, teaching fishing and fishing safety courses (including water and boating safety) and giving presentations to anyone that wants to hear from us.
Fishing takes many different forms and shapes. It can be as simple as standing on the shore and throwing a line in the water. Conversely, it can also be as complicated as fishing on a boat in the ocean where you need a little more than a simple rod and reel. It can be done in streams, ponds, lakes, and oceans. The secret to enjoying fishing is to start small and if you want to, continue to fish in various locations trying to catch various types of fish. The important thing is to have fun!
The mission of Get Kids Fishing is to look for ways to promote the great sport of fishing by any means available. We will also help make the activity available to people of all ages and all means, and to make it affordable to all.
