Blizzard Doesn’t Keep Captain Greg From 4H Family Day

Captain Greg drove eighty miles through a blizzard to attend the 4H Family Day at Dodgeland Middle School, located in Juneau, Wisconsin to teach fishing.  Captain Greg Certified Angler Educator of Learn 2 Fish With Us and NPAA member #138 has never canceled an event he said he would attend.  

Families learned to fish by attending the ‘Fishing Basics’ seminar, which educated them on the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing.  ‘Fishing Basics’ is a hands-on interactive seminar that demonstrates the equipment and skills, and has youth come up and work with Captain Greg to utilize the equipment and do the skill.  This way their peer group feels good that they can also do the skill or utilize the equipment.  Topics include; 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.  

Thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association and Learn 2 Fish With Us youth attending the seminars received the following; spin cast fishing combo, a NPAA Future Pro Shirt, along with a fishing educational book.
