Hey there fellow Anglers,

I am currently the leader of a group of 6th grade boys in Royal Ambassadours at my church. I attend First Baptist Church in Allen, TX. For those of you that are not sure what Royal Ambassadours is, here is a link:

http://www.texasbaptistmen.org/Ministries/Royal-Ambassadors

In short it is like Boy Scouts but for church...Anyway, I am the sole leader for 6 boys and I am planning a fishing derby on Saturday, November 11th in Allen, Tx. The only issue I have is that all of my fishing gear is baitcaisting and two spinning rods which aren’t really suited for first time fishermen...and I really didn’t want go out and buy 6 spincasters for just one day:/

I am inquiring if there are any anglers in the Allen/Sherman area that have some spincasters they would be willing to donate or let me borrow for one day???

Please message me for details or questions. Thank you again everyone!

Satio for the win!

This is why I love the fishing community. We can come together, support one another no matter what backgrounds and all for one cause.

These kids will also need some prizes. Shoot me an address and I will send some things that they can catch fish on when they make their next outing.
- Small Spinner baits with trailers.
- Some Scent to dose packs of plastics.
- Small swim baits and jig heads.
- Packs of small worms to Trig.

Maybe I can do 6 packs so they can use them on this Derby coming up.

Another Generous offer from an amazing angler. This is what makes me proud to be an angler. We are not just lone individuals in a sport, but a strong community.

There has just been an overwhelming response of guys wanting to donate not just poles but prizes and things for the boys. They don’t know what y’all have done yet, but they are gonna flip once they find out:)

I wanted to give a special shout out to Satio, Donald Harper and greenen for their generosity and willingness to help.

Tonight was a meeting with my 6th grade RA’s and I told the boys about the unexpected response that I received to donate/support their fishing derby. Their reactions were priceless and they acted almost dumbfounded, haha. They couldn’t believe the former RA’s that responded and it really helped them make the connection that RA’s is more than just an hour a week on Wednesday night.

They wanted to give a HUGE thank you to those men that have helped out and to anyone else that shows interest.

I had another request for my fellow Anglers on here. This Fishing Derby is being hosted on November 11th, which as you know is Veterans Day. The place where we are having the Derby is also the home of a Veterans Memorial. Before the derby I will show the boys the memorial and give a brief speech/lesson about veterans.

I was wondering if there are any Veteran Anglers on here in the Allen, TX area who would be willing to donate a piece of there time on Veterans Day to come out and spend a little time with the boys. You don’t have to stay the whole 2 hours, you don’t even have to fish, although I don’t know why you wouldn’t :p


For any questions or more information, just message me. Thank you again for everyone’s time and support.

One of the items that you will be in need of for the boys to use some of the plastics that I sent is the Walmart Beetle Spins. Maybe someone that has 6 or so could make that donation. They sure do catch lots of small lake fish when they want a little flash.

I think I know what your talking about Don, they usually are Johnson or Mann’s beetle spins, definitely an underrated type of lure. Thank you again for your support and suggestion.

And if you know any Veterans who are Anglers and wouldn’t mind taking a little time on Nov 11th to spend with some RA’s, send them my way smile

Donald Harper, the bait packs you sent are awesome! Such a good assortment of soft plastics and unique spinner baits. The boys are gonna be blown away!

Also, let me know if there are any veterans who can spare some time:)

Opinions Needed!



What do you guys think about this DIY paracord lure? This Wednesday night as a part of the lesson for my RA’s I am going to have them make this lure for the upcoming fishing derby.

The paracord Lures was a success!

I had the boys make their own Lures tonight and they all liked the idea of making something themselves and catching fish with it. I brought my skirt making materials and the boys picked out some colors they wanted on their Lures. I also had a rank of water for the boys to see what the Lures looked like underwater.

I actually took the prototype I made first and took it out fishing before the class tonight. It caught two fish in about 15 minutes. I was surprised and proud that something so simple worked so well.
