Best Father’s Day Gift Is To Teach A Child To Love Fishing – Post And Courier

Age group winners from the 2010 Folly Beach Anglers Take a Kid Fishing event held at Folly Beach Pier.

On Memorial Day, I got to help my 3-year-old grandson, Jon Thomas Perry, catch his first fish. Last Christmas, my sister gave Jon Thomas a small rod and reel, and he insisted on taking it on a Memorial Day trip by boat to the beach, clutching it the entire way. Eventually, we rigged the outfit with a hook and split shot, baited the hook with old shrimp, flipped the bait out and began our wait. It didn’t take long, but the memory will last a lifetime.
