For the family the water is an excellent place to teach and learn.
However, the key to gaining the benefits of fishing with the family is to
prepare before you even head to the water. Take the time to teach your
child the basics of casting, reeling, troubleshooting and about fish in
the backyard before actually heading out to the water.

The backyard preparation should begin at least a week before you actually
go fishing. Just remember it isn't all about learning, it is also a way
to help increase the child's interest and excitement in the fishing
experience.

Next you want to teach your child how to properly use fishing equipment.
Ideally you should buy the proper equipment for the age of the child as
well as the species of fish you are planning on catching. It is best to
teach your child the four basic casting methods including fliping,
sidearm, overhead and backhand.

After the child has had enough practice casting you can start to teach
them about troubleshooting reels, tangles and other malfunctions. Some
children may even learn how to handle these on their own after enough
casting practice. It is best your child learns how to troubleshoot on
their own before you go fishing otherwise it can be difficult to learn
these tasks while actually attempting to fish.

Then when it comes time to plan your family fishing vacation make sure it
is one that will be enjoyable for the entire family. You can't hope to
have a wonderful experience if you don't make sure it is something the
entire family can enjoy. So any fishing vacation over a day or two in
length should include a few other side trips to keep the children
interested. Depending on your location you can consider a hike around the
area or taking a drive into town for the day.

It is also important that you properly prepare for the trip. Make sure
you have packed the appropriate gear for your length of stay and the
location. Be sure you bring extra fishing equipment such as poles.
Nothing is worse than breaking a pole and having nothing to replace it
with. Also make sure you children have their own gear, give them their
own tackle box and allow them to make a lot of decisions on their own.

If you choose to go boating when on your fishing trip, then make sure you
have the proper safety gear. The life preservers should be properly
fitting for children. If gear is too large then the safety equipment
isn't acceptable for children. By having proper safety gear in place you
can spend more time enjoying your trip rather than worrying about your
kids.

Always remember that some kids will take fishing seriously from the
start. They will quickly take to knowing which bait is best and how to
find the perfect spot when casting. For these chil dren you want to take
advantage of their willingness to learn and teach them all the details
you can.

But then remember on the other hand you will have children who don't take
to fishing right away and a lot of patience will be required to help your
child learn the techniques of fishing. Happy Fishing.
