On Wednesday, May 18th, Captain Greg Karch of Learn 2 Fish With Us and National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) hosted a fishing clinic for first through fourth graders at Shephard of the Valley Lutheran School. Shephard of the Valley Lutheran School is located in Menasha, Wisconsin. Captain Greg hosted his Fishing Basics seminar which taught youth the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing. Captain Greg kept the attention of the youngsters through his interactive seminar which allowed youth to interact with Captain Greg by working with the fishing equipment and experiencing hands on skills training. This allows youth to see their peer group accomplishing the activities. Fishing Basics teaches; safety while fishing, fishing combos, casting, knot tying, fishing presentations, fish identification, live and artificial bait, aquatic invasive species, being a sportsman and so much more.
Thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association, Shakespeare and Learn 2 Fish With Us, each student received a NPAA Future Pro Shirt, tackle and a fishing educational book.
