Maybe this will make it easier to understand: It's likely that a lot of kids who spend all of their time behind a game console never get the chance to decide whether or not they like fishing. And if more moms and dads gave their kids tackle boxes instead of the latest version of Grand Theft Auto, they would spend more time pursuing outdoor adventures instead of staring at a screen. A lot of people would say that would be a GOOD thing.

Both my Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers were fisher women. They lead me down that little road, past the barns and to the pond in the holler at the edge of the woods many times as I was growing up. Whatever we caught was what we had for supper. Sometimes that was a snapping turtle.

I hope everyone that still have the old family farms and getaways are doing this for the young people in your family and their little friends that come to play. It will payoff someday. The memories are priceless. The experiences of being raised this way are disappearing fast. The knowledge gained not just form fishing; but seeing a baby calf born to helping in the garden will help our young people better understand the importance of life, family and what hard work means.

This is a pretty ignorant post. I spent my childhood and even now, both enjoying the outdoors and video games. Again, I'm 30 and do both. Anytime I can get out I'm fishing and when I can't I play games. I would wager than anyone that posts these types of things spend 100x the amount of time I or others play games, which are interactive and require some brain usage, watching tv and sitting which requires nothing but an [censored] and a chair to do. No thinking involved whatsoever.

TLDR Old fatties sit on the couch and watch tv more than young people play games. Also you can fish and play games.

Well, I am one of those old fatties; but not sitting around looking for something to do. I spend my free time out in a hot 100 degree shop building baits to help my friends catch bigger Bass. The way I look at that is it helps keep me in shape to fish in the heat from daylight to dark.

No one is belittling you for using your free time the way you would like to do so. It just irritates us old school fatties to watch the younger generation berried up in a game when the door is falling off the barn, one of the fences needs mending and the roof leaks on one of the sheds. We were just raised that way, where there is always work to be done and it is not something that we put off until tomorrow. We look at life as a productive family unit where every minute of every day contributes to the building of that unit making it better for ourselves and others that we are interacting with. We all have different life styles and must follow that path in the direction which best suits those around us.

The best example I can give of my frustrations is my Grandson. He has developed the skills to play these games and it becomes very difficult to communicate with him while this is going on. It is like wait for 30 mins. until I am finished and I am thinking the barn could fall down in 30 mins. Ha... It is just the communication part I have a problem with. He had rather be playing than talking to me about life lessons. He believes he can make his own way with these lessons. Then when we get 60 years old and look at all the mistakes that we made, we say dam, I wish I had taken time to listen to Grandpa.
