Some of your fondest childhood memories may be of you and your father going fishing. Today, with a son (or daughter) of your own, you want to pass down this tradition to your offpsring and keep this pastime alive. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your first father-child fishing trip:
Pick the Right Location
If you already have a favorite fishing spot —or can get to the location where you and your father used to go fishing — make sure to pass down the tradition to your child. Explain why that lake is special to you, and tell him or her about all the memories you made there.
If you don’t have a place in mind, though, do a little research to find the best fishing spots for the type of fish you want to catch. Visit your local Chamber of Commerce or browse local fishing guides to uncover any recommendations.
TakeMeFishing.org is a great tool for finding local fishing spots as well. If you plan on camping on your trip, try to get close to your fishing destination and make sure your vehicle can get through any off-road paths.
