Default FishyKids

Check out this great new website, http://www.fishykid.org/. This site is the brain child of two fathers with fly fishing Internet websites, Cameron (from Fiberglas Manifesto) and Kevin (from Red Dirt Studio). Here is a brief description of the project:

"The fishy kid site was designed to provide children and families inspiration to be outdoors and on the water. There will also be an educational component to the site as we link up with conservation organizations too.

Bob White, Derek DeYoung, AD Maddox, Kevin Powell, Paul Puckett, Kurt Warner and Mark Yuhina are just some of the contributing artist to the coloring book. Drop by the site and check it out. If you have kids, get them coloring and enter to win some of the great prizes they have lined up.

For our first project/contest we paired up with a stellar list of fly fishing artists and came up with a 30 plus page coloring book which can be downloaded from the site once you've registered as a member there. We've also paired up with a growing list of gear sponsors who are providing prizes that we'll use for a coloring contest that will run from August through November. The first week of December we'll be drawing winners and sending off prizes."


P.S. Thanks to an email from Jeff Kennedy (of 365 Flies fame) for the above info (I couldn't describe this new site any better so I've used Jeff's words....those in italics and quotes). Jeff is one of the artists that are involved....and did the logo too. This is a great way to get kids into fishing and conservation, not to mention the outdoors. How important that is????.....kids are our future.....especially in fly fishing.

Tight Lines,

Mike
