Youth, fish and smiles in NM.

Taking kids fishing

There is nothing better than the smile on a kid while they are holding up their prize catch. We encourage you to take a kid fishing in New Mexico. Take a picture of their catch and let us post it here. They don't have to be trophy fish, trophy smiles are what it's all about.

Youngsters with their prized catch


Kids First Fish Ever

Teaching my new Step Children to fish by Eric and Iris. Xavier and Robert caught their first fish ever at Navajo Lake in Northwest New Mexico, It was the Highlight of their young life's. These days we get asked when we're going fishing again every week of the year. Its a wonderful thing to teach a child to fish, or should I say to catch.
