Young Anglers of today
« on: August 18, 2017, 05:06:18 PM »

While attending the FLW Cup I spent a little time at some of the areas where they allow kids to cast into a pond and another area where folks were pitching into a target.

The thing that was impressive was the amount of young people I would say from 8 to 12 years old demonstrating some very good skills.  This was especially true at the pitching area.  The technique and accuracy they were showing was indeed incredible.  These were just kids at the show who came with their parents.  They either had some great training or are demonstrating that the anglers of tomorrow are on their way.

For you guys that are fishing with your kids or grandkids good for you.  These young people learn quickly and acquire great skills at a rapid pace.  It also is a pleasure to be out on the lake and see for example a father son fishing outing where the son is on the front of the boat taking care of trolling motor duties while dad does his thing on the back deck.  It must be a very fulfilling moment to watch Jr. having a great time.  Memories are for certain being created.  The biggest thing the kids want is just to spend some time with you and make you proud.  If you dads and granddads aren't taking advantage of this you are damn fools.

It's been some of the best times I've had on the water over all these years and as they are in their twenties now it's really good bud!! They learned really well and they love being out together with the fun and all the antics. They damn well catch some serious fish now too.

I got my son into watching the "Legends" on YouTube. Roland Martin, Bill Dance & Hank Parker. It's very hard today to find quality people like that for kids to admire anymore. I will admit, Scott Martin and there's two other channels he watches to learn from, Jigging with Jordan and Catch em' All Fishing.
