According to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the number of children who fish is declining. Mike Bolinder, executive director of the Future Fisherman Foundation, says, "The key to getting kids interested in the sport is not just taking them fishing, but teaching them to fish." Among other things, the Future Fisherman Foundation donates money and gear to school programs willing to teach kids how to fish. Some 40 schools across the country will participate this year.
