Kissing Fish picture

Angler's Legacy is a fishing program from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources that helps develop adults with little or no fishing experience into self-sustaining fishermen and women. High school students, college students, and families are introduced to fishing through a program designed to help them gain the skills and confidence to become lifelong anglers. Events focus on the skills needed to successfully catch fish such as how to use a spinning rod and reel, determine proper hook size, know what kind of bait to use, how to bait a hook, and how to take a fish off a hook. Other topics include where and when to fish and fishing regulations. The goal of the program is to teach people who may have never fished before how to become successful, long term anglers.
