Gift for New Baby Girl

Recommended Posts

We had a new granddaughter last week and was looking for something unique. I remembered this poem I saw on an ad in In-Fisherman. I took her picture at 2 days old - which of course is adorable - put it into my Microsoft Publisher then I laid the poem on top of it and printed it on photographic paper and framed it. Even my husband said it was really neat. Here is the poem:

Take me fishing.
Because my wedding will
Be sooner than you think.

Take me fishing.
And show me that worms
really aren’t that icky.

Take me fishing.
You can think about
work later.

Take me fishing.
Because I get the giggles
when the boat bounces.

Take me fishing,.
Because my wedding will
be sooner than you think.

Congradulations Grandma. Thank you for the poem it was great. I'll have to do that with my grandaughters pictures. I have 8 grandaughters and 3 grandsons. I'm always looking for ideas that have to do with fishing to give them. I got a picture of my oldest grandaughter holding some fish she caught last summer and she has her 11th birthday coming up in April. Of course I'll have to do 2 so I can keep one for myself.

Hi Mary: Of course I had to do 2 also! I gave it to my daughter last night and she loved it! Your picture with the little girl would work great. The add I saw was a girl about that age - but I just could not wait that long! Nice day today - getting the itch again - bought some fake minnows at Wal-mart just to keep me going for awhile. wink.gif

Phyl...congrats on the grandkid!

The poem you found is part of a national ad campaign designed to increase participation in boating and fishing. There are several other spots....a boy and his grandpa, a husband and wife (take me fishing and make me feel 16 again...) a grandpa and his son...
They are all highly emotional, and appear to be working. This will be the second year of the campaign...pushing this spring into the National Fishing and Boating Week in June.

For more info on the ad spots, check out www.rbff.org (the HSOforum for Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation)...or www.waterworkswonders.org (this is the site for the ad campaign...and has links to events nationwide...)

Hi ghotierman: Thanks for the links! I am sure I can find some more ideas for great gifts since the daughter one was such a hit. The ad that I saw about the daughter was really cute and well done. My hats off to them.

fishingphyl...a great gift idea for kids, and a great investment in the future of fishing: a lifetime license! Very affordable for kids, and even if they move out of state it's still good for life!

That is a very good idea except my grandson and granddaughter live in ND. But this would be a great idea for all the "natives".

    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
    • Season is young yet fellas, hopefully it stays dry for a while, we ran into lots of water and crops as well. The kid dropped the only rooster we saw on Saturday , lots of hens though. The neighbor out that away saw a small brood of chicks 2 weeks ago, real late hatch but hopefully they came out ok in the rain last week.
    • Spent a week grouse hunting around Grand Rapids. Left on Saturday Oct 13 because I tired of running into Ruffed Grouse Society yahoos using Minnesota birds to bring in $$$ so they can buy more white pickups with Ruffed Grouse Society painted on the side driven by PHD's that are clueless as to why there was such a disparity between the 2017 drumming count and the actual number of birds on the ground. Saw or heard a total of 12 grouse and 7 woodcock for the week. My experience was the same as knoppers.   
    • Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.
    • I thought that was what it was.   Thanks for the ID.
    • yea they eat up the acorns. I have soo many acorns, the tree rats cannot put a dent in them.
    • I have always liked the blue jays also. SO much food here they all get along pretty well. 
    • parise looks very slow out there, he was terrible in OT. hopefully the wild can turn this poor play around soon.
    • OK I am now a fan of blue jays. had a woodpecker, a larger one, not the downy on my house, it pecked a few times, I pounded on the wall it flew off into the tree, as I watched it through the window, it landed on the side of the garage ready to go to business, and a blue jay flew at it and chased it off, it happened two times, then the woodpecker flew off. I also had a blue jay chase off bees, they made a paper nest on my eaves in one day, I watched a blue jay land on it, and jump around, the bees would come out, the jay would fly off. then the jay repeated this numerous times until the nest fell off, bees left.
