Fishing Report

Some of the old timers will tell you that the best way to teach someone how to swim is to push them right into the water. I definitely don't encourage anyone pushing someone into the water but I do see the benefit of not being afraid to try something different.

I can remember several times that I've been fishing with someone who was using a bait that I would have never tried, catch a fish while fishing ...
