Local Program Teaches Kids How to Fish

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Weekend Wonders Family Program's Fishing Frenzy is teaching kids how to fish, and is open to students of all ages.

It's $2 a person, and starts in the classroom where they learn about the external anatomy of a fish.

Naturalist Rebecca Mathius said the program incorporates a fish bond focus to the students and teaches them the proper fishing rules.

Mathius also says that she always remembers the little faces when she tears a worm in half.

After watching Mathius tear a worm in half, third grader Sarah Fischer said, "Uhh it's kind of disgusting."

"My favorite part about this is the look on all the kids faces when I tear up a worm, and put it on a hook, or handle a really big fish."

Mathius also says the goal is to teach kids basic fishing techniques like baiting a hook, and casting.
