Positive people bring positive change and this is what Fishing’s Future is. All across America, families are turning to electronic devices to communicate. Family communication, as it once was, is decreasing and the human connection is slowly being replaced with digital neutrality. Fishing’s Future provides opportunities for families to engage each other via an educational family oriented fishing activity. There is nothing more positive or more profound than providing families the opportunity to grow closer to each other and to nature.
This single component makes Fishing’s Future unique and it is a focus we must always maintain. Each individual who strives to better their community must fully commit to stepping outside their comfort zone and stretch the boundaries of their daily lives. They must dedicate themselves to a grander understanding of GIVING. It is not a giving for self-gain, but a GIVING for the betterment of society as a whole. We received the following comment which further illuminates this point and our mission.
“Some of my best memories are fishing with family and friends. We were a family of five, with a small fishing boat and seven poles. We were known as the spider boat. We would catch bass, walleye, and the occasional northern pike.
I especially remember one time going on the evening fish, just dad and I. Being on the rippling water, surrounded by the trees, a slight breeze, and the sun trying to peak out from behind the clouds. Dad was a quiet man, conversation was not really needed. We were tight line fishing, drifting. Just casting, getting caught on weeds pulling on my line, trying again and root beer barrel candy. I knew how to put on my own hook, sinker, and bait, but dad would always do it for me, I was his daughter. We didn’t catch anything that evening, except a quiet moment in time, a memory that will last forever.
Dad is no longer with us but these memories will live with me forever. In a society where everyone is focused on personal gain, it is nice Fishing’s Future is tuned into what really matters. You provide opportunities where fathers and daughters can share quiet moments.”
“Love and prayers to Fishing’s Future”
