Lots of parents would like to take their kids fishing—but find selecting equipment, finding spots, and the risk of failure too intimidation.  In this program, Connecticut’s top multi-species angler and Norwich Bulletin outdoors columnist Bob Sampson shares tips guaranteed to help you succeed and have a great time along the way.

These are the trips Bob took for years with his kids—and that they enjoy sharing even more today!  Loaded with tips Bob has learned over a lifetime spent fishing Connecticut waters. The trick is to plan for success (those who go "to catch anything" usually get nothing).

This program describes about everything a parent needs to know—what to go for, where, and when, tackle and techniques—to go on successful and enjoyable fishing trips, practically year round. Everything you need to know—from catching 'em to cooking 'em.
