Story: Freshwater fishing

Kids fishing with bait

Kids fishing with bait

Many children start out fishing using worms on a spinning rod. The worms are impaled on a hook, which is cast into the river with lead sinkers or fished with a bubble, letting the current carry it downstream. As they get older many children graduate from worm fishing to spin fishing, and then to fly fishing.
