yes it is.You can make a difference,join the team of catch-n kids pro staffers to make a difference.
Those of us at Catch-n kids have a program for schools to use to teach kids how to fish.
Here's what we are doing about it. Hit my link in the signature to catch-n kids.


K-12 schools across America can invite knowledgeable outdoor professionals into their classrooms using the school computer! This is a fun and innovative way to learn about the outdoors online. It is easy, just register a user-name on our Catch-n KIDS FORUMS using your class information and school's location.
If it happens in the outdoors... you can learn about it in your classroom. You may learn how to build a campfire today. Tomorrow, you could learn how to catch a catfish or a tuna. The next day, your class may learn how to smoke a fish or see the making of a birch bark canoe.

Teachers, your class may learn information that is not found in any school book. Catch-n KIDS allows your class to "chat" with our list of outdoor professionals in a SAFE and friendly learning environment. Students learn from live dialogue with a person who is a professional in what they do best! Classes can view photos or digital video clips and may benefit from live web cam interaction. Students may ask questions and get answers to those questions instantly! Some of these "chats" may originate from other classrooms by use of a live webcam! One of our Catch-n Kids Pro-Staff associates may come to your school.

How it works:

Teachers can register on the Catch-nKIDS forum to attend these live discussion "chats" on various topics. Each schoolroom's registration information may be displayed to show the school name and where the school is located. The name and location of the school is displayed each time a post is made with a question or comment. More than one classroom can attend the same topic. Catch-nKIDS "pros" can answer specific questions made by individuals in each class by school name or by the student's first name (if given) of individual classmates. Sessions on topics last from 30 minutes to an hour and may be joined while in process.

Catch-nKIDS outdoor professionals list their discussion topics on the Catch-nKIDS FORUM under "TOPICS". These topics are seen with the dates and times for the interactive meetings. Each topic lists a suggested audience rating for classes K-12. These pros come from the Catch-N.com Pro-Staff and other outdoor information sites across the nation. Many of our outdoor professionals work for companies that make outdoor related products, are outdoor radio and TV hosts, are outdoor writers, and are hunting or fishing guides or may compete in professional tournament trails. All of these pros are here to aid in educating America's youth so that they may fully and safely enjoy the great outdoors. Providing outdoor information to kids K-12 in a safe and friendly learning environment over the internet is the Catch-nKIDS goal. Each of our management staff and pro-staff professionals have been screened for criminal background and instructed in the use of proper kids forums ethics. Ethnic jokes, foul language, or sexually suggestive material is not allowed on these forums. Forums may contain information on hunting, fishing, camping, boating, sailing, swimming, hiking, processing and outdoor cooking of fish or game animals, target shooting with gun and bow, and making various outdoor related tools, foods, clothing, housing or shelters.

My kids will be fishing. No matter what. I'll be bringing my daughter as soon as the weather is nice again and she's only 11months now.
People really need to take time out to spend time with their children or someone else will introduce them to worthless crap.
Fishing is a basic essential to life...something that can be the most memorable time of their life.
Good job for anyone taking someone elses kid under their wing, that's a true father figure thing to do. smile smiley

Hoggie is with the DNR today on the radio show. I called him last night to ask if we could get involved /sponsered by the Mn. DNR with catch-n kids.
He said he'd bring it up.

Hey guy's. It has been a while. Lost my mother before Thanksgiving, my Grandmother Christmas Day, and had to put my grandfather, my fishing mentor, into a nursing home. I need a break!

On the subject of kids, I think we have more kids fishing now than ever, at least in our neck of the woods. I hope to run a few hundred worm drowners through the program this summer.

CK,

Any chance I can help with Catch classes locally. I want to go into the schools, but don't want to re-create the wheel. If I could do that at the schools and then teach hands on and river during the summer, we could really put some numbers up and create a bunch of new anglers.

The Catch-n-kids is a great idea. Anything that puts fishing into the hands of children is awesome. We have our local multispecies fishing league up here in Duluth and last year was the first time we decided to give something back to the community.

Let me tell you, what a blast and a great feeling to put some smiles on some young kids that never get a chance to wet lines. We got in contact with the local youth coordinator for YWCA, YMCA or basically any other group that works with kids. Set up a time on a lake and got a few sponsors to provide the tackle, rods, bait and we were set. We did two groups, one with all girls 8-14yrs and one with boys & girls about the same age. Check out some of the pics. I encourage groups of any type to put some type of fishing outing for kids in your area, it's something you'll never forget.

Hey Driftboat,,
