Yesterday Tim Euting, Bill Van Ornum, Patti Parcell and myself educated Pack 3045/3074’s on fishing!!  Besides the Cub Scouts, Fox 11 news attended.  Tim taught the scouts on fishing combos, casting and setting the hook.  Bill taught the scouts on live and artifical bait, how to hook the bait, crank baits and how to tie a palomar and clinch know.  I taught the scouts about; parts of a fish, fish identification, safety, AIS Message and the different types of fishing presenations.  The Cub Scouts should be well on there way to getting thier fishing belt loop or fishing pin.  Thanks to the sponsors as most scouts went home with a fishing item.  Patti was instrumental in making this a huge success.

Greg Karch is now a Cetified Angler Instructor

This weekend I attended the Lord Baden Powell Univeristy to get certifed as a CAI (Certfied Angler Instructor).  I passed the exam which had questions about eveything from fishing, fly fishing and the environment.  This weekend I learned a lot about fly fishing and tied a couple flies!!  I will now be able to instruct and certify scouts pursuing the fishing or fly fishing merit badge.  What a great weekend, I learned many new fishing related items so I can teach the youth and adults.  Let’s go fishing!!!!!
