SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: All kids should learn to fish

Published: Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 05:17 PM.

I returned home from vacation Saturday only slightly worse from the wear of sleeping on my mom’s sleeper sofa for two weeks.

Vacations these days mean spending as much time as possible with Mom, who celebrated her 82nd birthday June 26.

We had hoped to make a trip to the mountains, but her health didn’t allow us to travel the 500-plus miles from DeLand to Tennessee or North Carolina.

We did manage to take a trip to Port Canaveral with my 8-year-old great-nephew, Connor.


The trip's purpose was to take Connor to a free fishing clinic offered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and sponsored, in part, by Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration.

I learned about the clinic through an email I received from the FWC.
