This is really good. We need to promote this ... Train to Teach Kids Fly Fishing with NFSP for several reasons. I remember once reading about Trees in a book. It said that Fisherman are the largest single reason that conservation practices have grown in the USA. Efforts to maintain water purity, necessary for the life of Trout, for example, has been largely due to the efforts of Fishermen. We need to begin educating children so as to protect fishing rights, stream access, etc, and everything else connected with our sport. Also, Children respond so well to specific information, like 4-H and other activities. The more we can bring this kind of program into popular useage, the better we serve practical education. I would really like to see this being done everywhere.
