One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is, “When the best time to get a kid started fishing?” The best answer I have found is, “The the minute they start showing interest.”

As I have stated in the past, my parents owned a cottage on the river when I was about 4 years old, so I was exposed to fishing at a young age. I would follow the river bank and find a spot to sit down and cast a line out and hope I could find a hungry fish.
