My dad had me with a fishing pole at age 4. We went fishing every chance we could. From ice fishing, fly fishing, to offshore fishing, surf fishing, lake or pond fishing. You name it, we've done it. Never with live bait, he emphasized using lures.
My dad. We used to have a boat and spent weekends on it fishing for tuna. We caught mostly mackerel. It's a nice memory.
No one. I still do not know how to fish. I really have no desire to either.
Until I was became an adult, most of my fishing was in a small brook near our house with my older brother. I guess that means he taught me the basics.However, when I finally was old enough to go on my own I took up bass fishing and did a lot more of that, so I really think it was Bill Dance on his TV show that taught me the most.
You sure have enough on your plate. Are you that bored or does your mind just run around not knowing anything but wanting to know everything. WOW! I could try to answer all your question but I wouldn't know were to start or how to finish it. You make me laugh. Have a good day. I just love people like you.
At a very young age I got my mother to buy me a fishing pole and I could already
swim so I would walk to the Ohio river, cast out with a worm on a hook and sit on
the ground until I caught a fish, that was how I started. If, that did not work I would
go swimming. After many years later and many fishing trips I became a Licensed
charter Boat Captain on Lake Erie and taught others how to catch Walleye on my boat called: "Persistence."
A hubber named Randy Godwin once promised to teach me how to fish. I'm still waiting ... ... ... ...
My grandmother was an avid fisherman or I should say fisher-woman. She owned a dairy farm bordering the Genesee River located in upstate New York state near Wellsville, New York. This river runs north from there and into the Letchworth State Park where the river flows into the Mt. Morris Dam.
I spent many summers with grandma. She taught me how to fish from the bank with night crawlers or white earthworms. Trout did not stand a chance in those days. I was baiting a hook at a very young age.
I used to fish from my early childhood days. A distant relative named Kesumama, an old man who really enjoyed the company of children, taught me the techniques of fishing. A big pond was there near my house.different types of fishes were there.Kesumama used to take there.
My dad. He was an avid fisherman and small game hunter. I loved the outdoors and was curious as to what he was doing. He taught me to fish, and to hunt, though I don't do the latter any more. Nothing beats floating in the canoe while drifting down the river, or floating on the lake, with the sun shining and the birds singing. Ahhh, spring is arriving -- best time to go fishing!!!
Still I don't know to fish even though I am a marine biologist!!!!!!
My gramps down in Texas! I remember we saw dolphins a few times while we were out in the Gulf.
My dad taught me to fish. I think that his main motivation was to find someone to dig up worms for him My sister and I spent hours digging for worms, which we thought was great fun. I had a pretty sweet Micky Mouse fishing pole.
My dad. He (and I now) saw it as an inexpensive bonding event. Spending time on the water without distractions is a good way to connect with someone.
And especially today with all the cellphones, internet, tv, etc. it is hard to get undivided attention from kids. I took my kids, and now grandchild on their first fishing outing and have continued to do so.

My Pops taught me how to stand up for myself. How not to take crap from anyone, how to dream big, as well as to pursue those dreams with vigour and a fervent heart. Happy Father's Day, Dad!
