Learn 2 Fish With Us, National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) and the Wisconsin Fishing Expo have partnered for the last eight years to bring youth fishing education to the Wisconsin Fishing Expo!! Thanks to the Learn 2 Fish With Us and NPAA members Karen #121 and Greg Karch #138 for hosting three seminars this past weekend. Dan, an organizer of the Wisconsin Fishing Expo, asked Greg, if he would consider building an advanced fishing basics seminar for the 2020 seminar line up!! Over the last seven years they have had thousands of youth attend Greg’s ‘Fishing Basics’ seminar, and this would be a great building block for the youth and adults to learn more on fishing!! Greg accepted the request and built ‘Advanced Fishing Basics’ which was introduced to the public this past Saturday during the Wisconsin Fishing Expo!!
Greg and Karen hosted two ‘Fishing Basics’ seminars during the show which educated youth, families and adults to all the skills and equipment need to begin fishing. ‘Fishing Basics’ educates attendees on; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, casting safely and accurately, basic fishing presentations, knots, fish identification, parts of a fish, live and artificial bait and aquatic invasive species and so much more. ‘Advanced Fishing Basics’ seminar is built upon the ‘Fishing Basic’ skills and equipment and educates attendees on: bait caster and line counter reels, jigs and plastics, crankbaits, jigging and trolling presentations, how a graph works, maps, filleting a fish and cooking of the fish.
Thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association and Learn 2 Fish With Us, youth attending the seminars received one of the following; Shakespeare fishing combo, Shakespeare soft-sided tackle bag or a NPAA Future Pro Shirt.
