Spare Fishing Rods
Posted 23 August 2011 - 01:19 PM
i've been doing some looking at my gear and i don't use most of my fishing rods and they are just being wasted. as hard as it is to part with them ,i'd like to donate them rather then go through the hassle of selling them.
that and i don't want them to just sit in another guys basement being wasted.
the idea came to me the other night while fishing in the passage and saw three kids taking turns with one fishing rod.(and yes i geared them up with a fishing rod of their own). i figure it's better to intrest new anglers to the sport.

Just because you fish a lot doen't mean you are great or even good. It just means you fish a lot!!

Good on you Bro! Absolutely fine idea. There are a lot of kids out there that could use a little encouragement and good adult influence.
I've always found that a little positive attention goes a long way with the young enthusiast. Everyone should take the time to help, advise, and if possible, help equip our younger counterparts. Sounds corny, but they ARE the future of our sport and a little investment in these kids goes a long way.
Great post, Bambam.
