Yes, this is your chance to see stormtroopers fly fishing for trout because you don’t see this on the river every day.
Is this just a publicity stunt, or is there an important message behind this Star Wars-themed fishing outing? Watch and become one with the Force.
Certainly a unique way to profile the importance of introducting youth to outdoor pursuits; at least it will catch their attention. It is no secret that we are seeing a decresase in participation in fishing and hunting and the demographics are not looking good for the future. This is why youth mentored fishing and hunting programs are so important to keep numbers up.
Hunting and fishing revenue is so closely intertwined with conservation resources and funding that any significant drop in hunter or fishing numbers is going to impact the quality of our wild places. Healthy numbers for hunting and fishing participation also provides ardent voices in support of conservation, protection of public lands and lobbying to politicians to have our voices heard.
Whatever your outdoor sport be sure to either support a youth mentored program or take the time to introduce a youth to the great outdoors.
