4-H introduces students to fishing education

Kyler Jordan has been fishing before and likes it. “My aunt has a house by the lake and my other grandmother used to have a lake house at Smith Lake,” Jordan said. He had caught a catfish before while out fishing.

LYNN - One of the favorite pastimes of youth and grownups alike is the relaxation and excitement of fishing, especially when you hook and reel in a big one. Many youth today have never been fishing however. Kerri Roberts, the county 4-H Extension agent, sought a way to remedy this.
