Take Me Fishing 101 Video Series Prepares New Anglers for Outdoor Adventure

20090619004 When I was a kid, my family spent summers at Long Beach Island, NJ. A true island, on our street it was three blocks wide -- one block to the beach, one block to the bay. My dad and my brother would surf fish, and the three of us would often walk down to the bay pier at the other end of the street and fish in the bay.

I haven't fished now for at least 30 years. My son got a taste of it at YMCA summer camps at Sandy Point, but I've forgotten enough that I'm not comfortable initiating a fishing trip.

Until now.

A recent post on Outdoor Central News Network's blog features an online video series by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department that "walks novice anglers through everything they need to know to get started in a sport that often is seen as a gateway to the great outdoors."
