Summer is coming to a close and you’re scrambling to spend as much time with your kids as possible before they go back to school. We get it – as they grow older, finding fun things to do with them gets harder and harder. That’s why our team at Beach Water Sports wants to encourage you to rent a fishing boat and start teaching your kids to fish this summer. Kids that learn to fish learn to respect the water, and they develop a love of the outdoors all while learning a unique set of skills. Read on for even more reasons why learning to fish will benefit your children this summer.

3 Reasons to Teach Your Kids to Fish

1. Put Down the Screens

Let’s face it, kids today love their screens. Whether it’s a phone, tablet, or handheld video game, they probably have it in their hands and in front of their faces at some point each day. And don’t get us wrong, technology is certainly not some evil thing by any means, it’s only when technology is abused and becomes an addiction that there becomes a real problem. So why not get them outside with a fishing rod in hand instead? The feel of a fish hitting their line is something that no technology can beat, and it will do them good to “disconnect” from technology and “connect” with a fish instead.

2. Learn to Love Nature

One of the biggest threats to the fishing industry is the lack of teaching the next generation how to fish. And it all starts with getting them outside, teaching them about nature and conservation, and exposing them to the beauty of the outdoors. Far too many kids aren’t getting enough nature in their lives, and certainly far too many kids aren’t fishing. Get your kids outside, get a rod in their hands, and watch them blossom into young adults that respect and admire the outdoors.

3. Teach Kids Patience

Thousands of TV channels and the endless amount of entertainment options on the Internet teach kids they can get what they want, when they want it. In other words, our fast-paced lives and ease of access to anything at any time does a disservice when it comes to teaching patience. On the other hand, exposing kids to fishing teaches them that good things come to those who can wait.
