My Life In Fishing
Fish for Life is a non profit organization headquartered in Southern California with a charter to enhance the lives of special needs individuals by inviting selected groups to enjoy a complimentary half day fishing trip on the sea.
This program is designed to provide love and inspiration to a multitude of special needs people while teaching fishing skills and ministering to the value of life.
RED CARPET INTRODUCTION
We roll out the red carpet, literally. Before each child boards the boat, they will be introduced with a brief bio that they supply prior to the trip. The child and parent will walk (or roll if in a wheelchair) down the boat ramp on a red carpet wearing their new Fishing for Life T-Shirt as they are greeted by the Crew, Fishing Team Leaders and Food servers who make them feel very welcomed.
ON THE BOAT
Once aboard, the kids are grouped into teams and assigned a “Fishing Team Leader” who is an experienced and loving fisherman and will be responsible for his or her every need throughout the trip … but most of all will help them catch fish!
The Captain will announce the voyage destination and the First Mate will explain how to use the issued fishing equipment, teach fishing techniques and display how to use the bait selection available. He will also describe fish common to the area, and a variety of tips helpful to increase the odds of catching fish.
Before we dock, trophies are awarded to each child one at a time by their respective Fishing Team Leader who will acknowledge to the crowd something special they caught and any nice thought to honor them individually.
