    Hello from Little Rock. I made my first post on Saturday over in the "All Catfishing" section. I got the following from my dear friend Ken Swindle, an attorney in NW Arkansas. Can any of you help him out:

    [FONT='Arial','sans-serif']John, My oldest son is also 3. I have let him down. I have never taken him fishing. Mostly because I don't know the first thing about fishing. If you go fishing in NWA, let me know, and maybe we can tag along. Maybe even we can go out to Jon Robinson's pond in Madison County! (Jon and I get along passably well now, I think.) In the meantime, do you know of a good fisherman-guide for Beaver Lake?[/FONT]
    [FONT='Arial','sans-serif']Ken[/FONT]

    Thanks!

    Hey, John! I'm new here, too. Tell Ken to save the guide and gear for fishing with his buddies. He needs to keep it simple for a 3 year old. They aren't fishing to catch the 'big one'. They're just going to catch 'fish'. And for a 3 year old, a fish is a fish is......

    A Spiderman/Superman rod and reel (way fun!), a jar of worms, and a grassy little creek or pond are all they need. Well, maybe a fishing hat! Tell Ken to take a bucket for water, so they can collect the fish to count before they release them (so they can 'grow up'). At this age, quantity is way more important than quality! And remind Ken to keep it fun. Three year olds can bore easily.
