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".

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?
    • Had some great luck getting into some fat Late fall trout. Hope you enjoy.   Late Fall Trout
    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
