Born into Fishing, with my Father & 10 Uncles all crazy about Fishing we all caught the bug I just decided to keep it lol, I’ve been told numerous times that I was heading across a bridge on the way home from fishing at about 5 years old & threw my fishing rod into the water saying it wasn’t any good because it didn’t catch fish lol, I have 2 Sons 30 & 26 years old & a Daughter 31 years old & 2 Grand Daughters & I helped organize a canoe trip on most long weekends when they were growing up with as many as 36 Kids & Adults usually on the Saugeen River, my Kids started Canoeing about 2 years old & had their first fishing rod at 2 years old with their own tackle boxes. I’m a member of the Waterloo/Wellington Canadian Bass Anglers Federation and was on the CBAF Team Ontario that fished Lake Champlain in 2009 & Lake Huron Fishing Club where I re-started the LHFC In-Class School Salmon Hatchery Program in 2010-11 with 1 School, in 2011-12 we had 3 and in 2012-13 we had 10 Schools, in 2013-14 we had 17 Schools, in 2014-15 we had 21 Schools, Started a partnership with Bluewater Anglers and their 3 schools, United Fish and Game Clubs of Manitoulin and their 1 School, Sydenham Sportsmen Association and 2 of their 4 Schools and Bruce Peninsula Sportsmen Association with 1 of SSA school in partnership with LHFC. I’m hoping to expand the Program into other schools as Funding & Volunteers come forward.
