In this post I will share 4 reasons to take your kids fishing.
Fishing is a great activity for the whole family. Both my girls have been fishing since they were toddlers. It's been a really great way for us to spend more time together as a family.
Time goes by fast and our kids will only be little once, enjoy it!
Teach Them A Life Skill:
Fishing is an awesome skill to have. It's a way to provide food for your family that is totally self sufficient. It's also a great way to teach your kids to tie some basic knots and how to handle knives safely.
Practice Being Patient:
Patience is one of those virtues that is tough for a lot of kids. Fishing is a great way to practice being patient. Fishing is a slow activity that doesn't always yield results right away (or at all).
Enjoying nature is probably my favorite part of fishing. I just love being surrounded by our planet's natural beauty. I find it relaxing and theraputic.
It's also a great opportunity to interact with and teach your children about the natural world around them. We've seen so much neat wildlife and natural features on our fishing trips. We've found goose eggs, wild growing herbs, fish eggs, and salamaders. We've seen and identified tons of local bird species, picked wild blackberries, watched cicaida's molt, and so much more.
Our fishing trips are always an adventure!
Does your family enjoy fishing? What are your favorite family activities?
