So first we worked on fish ID. I used the Beginning Fishing book and Arkansas Sports Fish booklet from Game and Fish for the children to look up the fish in. Cloverbuds and Juniors only have to ID 5 fish: crappie, trout, catfish. bigmouth bass, and a bream. Seniors have to do 10.
Then we looked at the different parts of a fish (on a diagram I did not bring any live fish!)
After that we worked on casting. Alex was a big help demonstrating to all of the children how to properly cast their poles.
Since we were at the park by the nature trail we of course had to walk it one time. We did not see anything especially exciting but it is a nice walk and it was a pretty day to be walking!
