Program Description for Flopper's Fishin'
For kids of all ages who love to
fish (and even those who haven't gotten a line wet yet), Chuck
and Flopper provide a fun-filled, hands-on workshop. Chuck,
along with Flopper, the microphone-wielding fish, shares with
children his experiences as a young boy growing up with a
father who loved to fish. The workshop includes the basics of
fishin', including catching bluegill, bass, and catfish. It
then proceeds with hands-on knot-tying and casting sessions
and a highly-interactive question-and-answer session. At the
end of the workshop, each attendee is awarded a Flopper's Big
Bass Bites treat, a Flopper's Big Bass Hunter decal, a
tackle bag, an autographed picture of Chuck with a couple of
big bass, and an outline of the Fishin' Academy to keep for
their very own. This fun seminar is highly-charged,
fast-moving, and filled with photos that hold children's
interest as they learn and participate. And, with a little
luck, we may just hook them on fishin'!

Flopper's Fishin' Academy was invited by
Richardson Church of the Nazarene for fishing and fellowship.
Chuck showed his stuff BIGTIME as he is a motivational speaker
and had the kids fired up. He spoke with them about life
lessons, hard work, family and fishing. These kids learned to
tie fishing knots and how to cast. The casting part was very
interesting and I will be bringing a hard-hat and chest/b ack
padding next time. -- Gene Gradick,
The kidos were so excited and I cannot begin
to tell you what a wonderful event for children. The parents enjoyed it
as much as all the kidos. All of the thank you's from kidos
and parents were overwhelming. Being a sponsor of the Flopper
Academy is probably one of the best rewarding events for you
to be involved in. Today's event definitely made a lasting
impression on our future anglers. -- Connie Kilpatrick, Gary Yamamoto
I brought my son to the Flopper's Fishing
Academy that you had a few weeks ago in Richardson. I
thought that was great! He actually caught his first
bass (he had only caught blue gill and sun fish) Saturday
before last on the Berkley 4" worm drop-bait that was in the
free packet. We were fishing a pond in Farmers Branch
and he caught about a 1/2 lb bass on his FIRST cast! He
was pretty excited. -- John Morton - Group Manager, Tx
