Explain the equipment – Fishing For Beginners
Show the beginner how you do things! What size line do you use? Which hook is right for what you’re doing? How do you tie your knots, and which ones do you use? Fishing for beginners isn’t easy so let them absorb as much as they can, just don’t over do it.
Anyone can fish at any age. You’re never too old or too young to start.
Fishing is what I love to do. It doesn’t fit everybody, but get out there! The outdoors is good for the soul.
Don’t expect much fishing time at first
When introducing a child or a beginner to fishing, plan short outings. My kid’s attention span doesn’t last long, so I try to go where there are other activities besides fishing. The beach or lagoon work well for us.
Know when to give up
Remember it’s about the beginner. I always want to fish, so it’s hard for me to teach. A little patience will go a long way, and it won’t be long before they catch on anyway.
