I took a first-time fisherman out last week who's lived in the PNW his whole life. He and his wife made a substantial donation to a church youth group for their mission trip to Kentucky where 23 teenagers and 7 leaders helped rebuild homes destroyed by tornados in 2021.

So, my youngest son and I took him out for a salmon fishing trip. Of course, it was the day after WDFW shut down chinooks. But that didn't matter. He had a great time and together the 3 of us limited on cohos and pinks.

He also happens to be a former Young Life staffer.

Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

Another update:

I took another first-time fisherman (he hasn't fished in over 30 years and never out of a boat) out last week who's lived in the PNW his whole life. He and his wife made a substantial donation to a church youth group for their mission trip to Kentucky where 23 teenagers and 7 leaders helped rebuild homes destroyed by tornados in 2021.

So, my youngest son and I took him out for a salmon fishing trip. He had a great time and together the 3 of us almost limited on cohos and pinks.

He also happens to be a former missionary.

Let's just say he was very pleased with his adventure on the water.

Also, just a reminder, that if you'd like to make a donation to help me continue to make these introductions to first-timers to fishing, check out the original post. I AM NOT A GUIDE. I am a full-time ministry leader that donate all of my gear, boat, gas, and funds to allow these trips to happen 100% FREE. I specifically try to introduce pastors, ministry leaders, and Christian business leaders into outdoor adventures.

Blessings!

Yep, you guessed it - another update! It's been a busy summer!

On this day, my son and I took out a teenager who was asking if he could get a chance to fish with us on the boat. He's only ever caught 1 salmon before, but never on a boat. So, we called him up when an open seat was available and spent 4 hours on the water together. Let's just say he left with an armful of fillets and grinning ear-to-ear.

He caught his Personal Best sized fish, a tank of a pink salmon. What a fun day!

Going to get this thread back up and running for the summer. I'll be taking new fishermen and their families out for free again this summer. If you have any tackle boxes, tackle, fishing rods, reels, or other gear you'd like to donate to this cause, I'm happy to take whatever you can donate.

If you know of a pastor or ministry leader that would like to receive some help or a grant or some gear or take a trip out fishing, let me know. I'd love to help!
