Forestville, WI: From JR Carter Fishing: Kris Walcker and JR Carter had a great time teaching 36 local kids at the 2nd annual kids fishing clinic at the December 2018 ND Sportsman’s Expo. The kids learned about ice fishing and open water safety, proper clothing for the conditions, fish identification, preventing aquatic invasive species, state fishing laws and how to catch fish. We also worked with the kids on their casting skills. We hope everyone who attended can create some great memories ice fishing this winter! Special shout out to the Future Angler Foundation for providing 13 Fishing Ice combos for the kids and NPAA Future Angler T-Shirts!
Many were making plans with their parents to go ice fishing the next day. The adults even walked away with some new knowledge, tips and gear ideas. The duo stated, “If we can create excitement, peak their interests and capitalize on their participation, we can hopefully spark a passion in them to be a future angler.”
“JR and I are honored to be part of organizations who invest in future generations and appreciate the ND Sportsman’s Expo for their continued interest in the clinic and providing a space for where the kids could gather. We hope everyone who attended can create some great memories on the ice this winter with their new rods,” Walcker said.
