Where has all the Young Fisher Kids Gone?????

Posted 04-30-2010 at 09:30 AM by loydtruss

I donít know if youíll have notice or is it just me, but I am seeing less and less young people on the water fishing these days. I find this disturbing because so many of our kids are not outdoors enjoying nature but instead inside the house playing computer games and watching T.V. I wonder if the fishing industry is aware of this situation or just blind to the fact that their fishing customers will last forever. In recent years there have been clinics, bass tournaments, fishing rodeos, and other events used to try to stir the interest of the young, without much success. The fishing industry has to compete these days with all the technology the kids have at their fingertips. How do you compete with the far fetched videos games, the outrageous T.V. programs and of course computer games??? I must admit I donít have the answer and I really donít think anyone else does at this stage. I would like to hear what your opinion is on this subject. I have added some interesting links to attest to what I am talking about. A great article from Fish and Boat. Check out this link Fishing With Your Child which talks about hunting in decline as well as fishing among the young.
