On Tuesday, June 14th, Captain Greg Karch of Learn 2 Fish With Us and National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) taught kindergarten through fifth grade the Fishing Basics. Captain Greg, hosted two Fishing Basics seminars at Tigerton Elementary Summer School for seventy-five students, where they learned about the equipment and skills needed to begin fishing through an 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 Learn 2 Fish With Us first time hosting a fishing clinic in Tigerton, Wisconsin.
So many of the students were excited to learn about the skills and equipment and said ‘they so look forward to getting out fishing this summer!!’.
The teachers were excited to learn that Learn 2 Fish With Us will be hosting fishing clinics at the Outagamie Conservation Club next year, and they’re looking to do a field trip to learn and go fishing.
