Youth Fishing Instructor Newsletter, Holidays 2014

Yes, I am going to recycle some news for this blog post.  I fully realize that all of our Youth Fishing Instructors have seen this by now, and I know that some of the events mentioned have by now come and gone, but I think it is good to let others see this newsletter too.  It is good to let folks know what we have been doing and to tell them a little bit about the great folks that work for us and with us!





If you want to see a larger, higher-quality version of that newsletter, here you go, 2014 holiday newsletter .

You can see that one of our youth fishing instructors, “Harold”, is highlighted in this issue of the newsletter.  I have been with Harold the past two weekends at ice fishing workshops.  The man is a treasure.  His enthusiasm and dedication are infectious.  When we have fishing workshops or family fishing nights I always tell people to just come out and expect to have fun with us; Harold is the epitome of that.  He is always having a great time and is sharing that with others and in the process they learn how to catch fish!  Oh, and I must mention that Harold’s wife is often with him at workshops and kid’s fishing or family fishing events; she was with him at both of the ice fishing workshops the past two weekends and she is a great help too.  Both of them are examples of some of the great volunteers we have helping us in the Youth Fishing Program.  Thank you!

Now one reason I make it a point to post the Youth Fishing newsletters in my blog is because I believe there may be some reading this who are not involved in that program, but who would like to be!  If that is the case, here is how you can get involved too, Becoming a Nebraska Certified Youth Fishing Instructor .  We can always use more help!

Harold in action. Just look for the “Packers” ice suit. (Sorry about the outcome of the game last Sunday, Harold)
