Why Go Fishing With Your Kids? By Apryl Parcher
Fishing is one of humankind’s oldest pastimes. It’s easy to learn, easy to teach your children and doesn’t have to involve lots of expensive equipment. It’s also a great opportunity to teach kids about aquatic ecosystems in a way that builds great memories.
My father, Bob Fields, taught me to fish as a young girl, and he’s now teaching his great-grandchildren, so I picked his brain to show you how to do it quickly and easily. I’ll also sprinkle in some of Papa’s best tips on fishing as we go along.

Some of my earliest memories are of fishing with my parents from the bank of a pond on my grandparents’ farm using a cane pole.
