Proud Sponsor of Fishing the Midwest’s – School of Fish

School of FishSchool of Fish, the leaders in fishing education, recently completed their third year of hosting fishing classes for kids and their parents/other adults. School of Fish taught 27 open-water Schools in 2015 graduating 657 “water ready“ kids and 206 adults.

Started in Alexandria, MN in 2013 as an open-water fishing class, School of Fish was very well received and, due to requests, added School of Fish ON ICE that fall. The program has now taught 84 Schools and ON ICE Schools across Minnesota and in Wisconsin and South Dakota and has graduated over 1,800 kids in its brief existence.

“We had our biggest year in terms of Schools and graduates in 2015,“ stated Mike Frisch, one of the program’s founders. “Our goal continues to be to provide kids with the knowledge, skills, and equipment they need to get their fishing careers started,“ he continued.

“This past year, we invited a parent or other adult to accompany their child to several schools and that was a huge success. Fishing is a great family sport and  it is only natural that fishing education be done in a family setting as well. We hope to make all of our upcoming classes open to adults,“ Frisch said.

Frisch also lauded the program’s sponsors in helping grow School of Fish.  “We are able to offer kids a great fishing equipment package in addition to the knowledge and skills they learn and, our sponsor support makes that possible,“ Frisch concluded.

Northland Fishing Tackle, Soderholm Insurance, KLN Family Brands, Shakespeare Fishing, Larson FX Boats, Cabela’s, ShoreMaster, Whiskey Creek Media, and Fish On Kids Books were 2015 open-water School of Fish sponsors.
