By  |  0 Comments

A father teaching their son how to fish, can be a real father, son bonding experience. If you’re an avid fisherman, you can only hope that your children will follow in your footsteps. This list will take you through the best ways to get your children into the sport that you love. You can teach them what decisions to make, what mistakes not to make etc.


Let them bring their friends with them

When you’re a teenager, all you want to do is hang out with your friends. And you want to stay away from your parents as much as possible, because they’re “uncool”. As a parent this is your chance to show you’re your son or daughter that you are “cool” and fishing is also “cool”. Another reason why it’s a good idea to invite his friends, is just in case he gets bored he has people to talk to while he waits.


Get suitable equipment for their age

This is a great idea, because now days, there are tonnes of dads trying to get their children into fishing. So they buy the equipment as a birthday or Christmas present, you can buy this equipment at many different stores all across the country. Total Fishing Tackle are one of the leading fishing outlets in the UK. Another good reason there is to buying suitable equipment, instead of handing down your equipment, is firstly because it may not be the correct size for them and will be very hard to learn with. And you should also give them a cheap piece of equipment when starting out, because there would be a lot of pressure on your children with handling such delicate equipment.

Finding the correct location

If it’s the first time your son/daughter is going fishing, making sure it is in a location that is full of fish is very important. Your teenage child does not want to just sit there waiting hours on end for a big fish, that may not ever come. They would much rather be in a popular location, catching little fishes and getting a lot of action all day.

Have Fun!

The most important thing when fishing with your children, is to have fun. And you shouldn’t forget that, you’re not in competition with your child, it is a learning experience. And it is your job to calm down your child down if he gets a bit angry that he’s not the “best fisherman in the world”.
