Westside Third Graders Learn The Fishing Basics From Captain Greg

Captain Greg Karch of Learn 2 Fish With Us and the National Professional Anglers Association held a fishing clinic for the third graders of Westside Elementary on the afternoon of March 31st.  Captain Greg has been hosting Fishing Basic seminars for Westside Elementary for the last eleven years.  Westside Elementary is located in Kimberly, Wisconsin.

Eight-nine third graders learned about the equipment and skills needed to begin fishing, through an interactive Fishing Basics seminar.  Fishing Basics taught students; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, how to cast safely and accurately, knots, fish identification, live and artificial bait, aquatic invasive species, logging fishing trips, conservation and so much more.  After the seminar many students had questions for Captain Greg such as; ‘What’s your biggest fish you caught?? and “What’s your favorite fish to fish for?’ and so many more. 

At the end of the fishing clinic students learned they would receive a NPAA Future Angler shirt and a fishing educational book thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association, Future Angler Foundation and Learn 2 Fish Were the third graders excited!!  Captain Greg got writer’s cramp signing the shirts and hats for so many of the students.
