i've noticed in my few years of being a BOC member that there are alot of young members (teenagers and younger). all of these young people seem to be well mannered and respectful to others. i'm glad to have them and eager to answer their questions when i'm asked. some of these young people come from single parent families and are in need of mentors. i know that alot of you older fishermen have the time and resources to take one of these young guys or gals on a fishing trip if they are close enough to make this possible. just think of the difference you could make in their lives to get them out on the water. i wish that i had someone close to me to take a time or two. it's great that the BOC is here for them. and you know that if they're on the creeks then they're not on the streets. so let's take a youngster fishing.
