On April 12th, Captain Greg Karch of Learn 2 Fish With Us, visited West Bend East High School where he taught two Adventure classes the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing. 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.
At the end of the semester, Adventure class students will attend a weekend gateway where they will go camping. While camping they will utilize the fishing equipment they rigged and the fishing skills they learned. A big thank you goes out to the National Professional Anglers Association for providing the fishing combos that the school will keep. Each youth received a fishing goodie thanks to Learn 2 Fish With Us sponsors.
