The thrill of catching a fish is great, but so are the many other benefits of spending a day on the water with friends. Fishing is a wonderful way to get fresh air and exercise, relieve stress and relax. It’s also a healthy way to spend time with friends and really get to know the people you’re enjoying the outdoors with. Fishing is well known for its therapeutic value, and it’s a fact that simply spending time outdoors is healthy and calming and can promote a stronger sense of well-being. PAL-KCK kids will learn the ins and outs of a rod and reel, tackle and casting. After mastering the basics, it’s onto the lakes! PAL officers and mentors will take participants on local and out of state fishing trips to test their skills and have a good time while enjoying the beauty of nature.
