It starts with those of us that are parents, and grandparents, and aunts, uncles and just true stewards to the outdoors. We all fight for ours and the next generations right to fish and hunt and the like, but we need to start in our own homes. The fight starts with that text happy gamer on the couch with some sort of non fish catching device in their hands.
We need to get our kids out of in front of the brainwash box, and on the water or in the woods. A lot of you have it right. Your fighting the fight. Some of us though need to slow down and grab the kids for that quick fish with you instead of sneaking it in by yourself. Even if they are young it’s never too early. My love of fishing runs very deep. I learned to swim, fish, surf and walk at the same time. I spent countless hours outdoors with my dad and other family members and now I try to pay it forward to my girls and the other children in my life.
It is imperative to grow our sportsman base with the next generation and our very own. Always encourage people to get involved and become members of great sportsman organizations. We need the numbers to keep our sports around and fight the politics that are invading our ways of life.
