Track and Field Day!
AN AFTERNOON OF FISHING AND LEARNING FROM A LOCAL EXPERT
On Friday, May 5, Mrs. Fair's and Miss Jacobsen's conservation students were able to spend the afternoon learning from local fishing expert Tom Howland at his pond north of Riceville. Tom shared his knowledge and expertise about fishing techniques, poles, reels, bait selections, tackle options and more. Also, Tom taught the students the art of casting using pitching and flipping techniques. Tom even had a contest set up for the students related to these types of casting skills. Two students won fishing poles that Tom donated to the class. Chloe Collier was one of the winners. Andrew Pridgen and Nolan Hendrickson had a fish-off to win the second pole. Andrew solidified the win by catching the largest fish of the day!! Congratulations to Chloe and Andrew!!
Learning about fishing from Tom was such an incredible experience. He has a wealth of knowledge, a passion for his sport, an appreciation for the outdoors; and what makes it even better...students are learning from a community member. We are truly grateful as teachers and students to have had this opportunity. Tom's message was inspiring and he encouraged the students to get outdoors and teach themselves how to get better at the sport of fishing. Thanks for everything, Tom...see you again next fall for when another conservation class will get the privilege of learning from you.
