I saw this in Bassfan.com today. This is how we should be promoting fishing! I would have liked going to school.

Missouri schools to vote on fishing 2/5/2013


"Missouri schools will have the opportunity this spring to decide whether bass fishing should become a school activity sanctioned by the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA).

MSHSAA has announced bass fishing will be included on its annual ballot to start as an emerging activity. The ballot will be posted on the association’s website on April 1 and will be available for a school’s principal or superintendent to vote on until May 1.

“If 50 percent plus one school of the schools voting on the ballot vote yes to approve bass fishing as an emerging activity, then it will be recognized by MSHSAA,” said MSHSAA executive director Kerwin Urhahn. “If it passes, then the schools will be able to sign up for bass fishing for the 2013-14 school year. If we have two years of 50 or more schools signed up to participate, then we will have a state series for bass fishing beginning during the 2015-16 school year.”

MSHSAA will then begin working with the schools and fishing experts to formulate the rules and guidelines for the series.

Sometimes I can't resist the obvious ones. After all I may be the Good Twin, but good is relative. :-D

One of my fondest memories is fishing in Miller's Pond in Smithtown using a 12' bamboo pole. It had braided nylon line,a big cork and a hook. My Dad and I used to go hunting earthworms and then go there fishing. You never knew what you might catch! I caught sunfish, eels and Bullheads! It was so much fun! We would fish after he got home from work til dark.
