LINCOLN – From now until September 15, experienced angles are encouraged to introduce people to fishing.
According to a release from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Take ‘em Fishing returns for a third year. Catching fish is fun and addicting and the more fish you catch, the more you want to keep fishing.
Experienced anglers who participate will know they’ve introduced someone to an activity they can enjoy for a lifetime, while also sharing their love of the sport.
Most everyone who loves to fish learned with the help of someone else. It is important to help more people know that fishing is a fun, convenient activity that is good for your health and well-being and helps you get in touch with nature.
As an incentive, participants who submit a photo of their trip with a beginner angler between April 15 and September 15 will be eligible for prizes, including a Bass Tracker boat, state park stay, kayak, fishing rod, gift cards and more.
Take ’em Fishing has annually grown. There were 4,700 entries in the first year and 6,195 last year.
