Why, bother Fishing with a Child?

Uploaded on July 02, 2009

Greetings,

I just wonder Why, bother Fishing with a Child?

Perhaps there is no greater joy for a Dad or Grandparent then to sit on the edge of a pond, under a slightly cloudy day, with a wisp of a breeze gently flowing through ones hair or cooling our baldhead. Then fishing with ones child or grandchild and discussing which worm has the best wiggle or which lure rather or not, it was created for a particular type of fish is the one to most certainly choose.

The intention for the fortunate adult is not the arguable phonetics of the proper bait or equipment, but rather our position in this wonderful situation is to be the facilitator of dreams and wonderment. So that in a later day, we shall have a companion that is as intoned to the relaxing pleasure of fishing that we ourselves are.

When we were young as I remember it, those fancy rods and reels were certainly to be left alone. Not only because of their
Extreme cost or so it seemed through my young childish eyes,
but were far to complicated to operate.

No, I was quite satisfied with my little Zebco rod and reel combo, a dozen worms I found after dark the night before
and wondrous dreams of one day landing the greatest freshwater fish of all times. There in being launched into world fame as the greatest Fisherman of all times and having the world of fishing in my hands.

That concept is what we as adults should desire to instill in our children and not be at all worried about the proper tackle, lure or bait or rather we should use a Texas rigging or a Carolina.

Each Saturday morning at: 10:am, I will be offering FREE starter Fishing lessons to children from 4years old to 6 years of age, with Paid Family Admission; Parents are welcome to listen in.

My time spent fishing with my father as a child taught me a few basics but our time together was more valuable than any knot or technique is. Even now I rarely ask questions; I enjoy our time together, and that is more than enough for me. I worry deeply about the day I will no longer have that time.

Pastor Brady you sound like a good dude.Not that you forgot but taking a kid fishing instills good patience and respect for your surroundings at a young age.It always bugs me if ask I someone if they fish and they reply "I don't have the patience for fishing."Patience eventually translates to discipline or maybe discipline translates to patience.Either way I loved fishing as a kid and when I got older and everyone around me was partying on weekends.I was going to bed early because I wanted to get up to fish or hunt.That alone is proof enough to me.

I always enjoyed fishing with my son when he was small, now that he is forty and live 300 miles away we dot see each other but about three times a year I cannot imagine a father NOT wanting to fish and hunt with his children.

My daughter will turn 4 in a few weeks. I have been taking her fishing for 2 years. Just seeing that one of a kind smile on her face when she is able to bring the fish into the boat on her own, and the same smile when I fry those fish up for her. . . priceless! This summer she learned how to cast and is now learning to take the fish off the hook on her own.
I have not pressured her on any of this, just took her out in the boat, and she decided she wanted to catch fish, she made the decision when to try casting on her own and so on. Not only is she having fun, she is learning how to make decisions on her own, and the affect of those decisions. Here is yet another reason to take a kid fishing!

I enjoyed my childhood time spent in the woods fields and on the water. My father still makes it a point to come out here and spend two weeks with me. he may not always think the methods and tactics I use are what he taught me but he trys them because he want to be involved. He has bowfished, varmint hunted spearfished because i asked him to.
