We LOVE to encourage adults to take kids fishing. If nothing else, a great memory or memories to share over the years. And if they get "hooked", what a great sport to be involved in!
The biggest thing to know about taking a kid fishing is that it is about spending quality time together. Try to avoid putting pressure on yourself or the kid by expecting to catch lots of fish or especially big fish--remember they call it fishing, not catching, for a reason. Fishing provides a great time to find out what the child is interested in and just talk. But if the subject shifts to fishing, talk about the history of fishing, what fish need to survive and how important clean water and healthy habitats are to fish and people (see links for some simple highlights to inform yourself about these topics). These discussions can lead to fun expectations, but fulfillment isn't always instantaneous, so patience is the key for both you and the kid.
