This past winter Kevin Powell and I started talking back and forth through email about creating something special for the younger generation...our children. As fathers of we're both working hard to impart our interest and knowledge of fly fishing and the outdoors to our own but wanted to do more. Those thoughts and ideas have been put together into a website called Fishy Kid and we're really excited to see where it goes from here.
Fishy Kid will be a blend of contests, news, conservation, photo galleries, education, and hopefully a few new ideas.
The first project for Fishy Kid is a children's coloring book and contest with over 30 pages from premier angling artists such as Derek DeYoung, Jeff Kennedy, A.D. Maddox, Kevin Powell, Paul Puckett, Kirk Werner, Bob White, and Mark Yuhina. This coloring book is quite impressive and so good that when we're done with the children's coloring contest we're going to run an adult contest too. Sharpen up those crayon and colored pencils since I've already got a couple of cool prizes lined up.
We will be running the coloring contest from August 1st through November 30th. The first week of December we'll be conducting a series of drawings for prizes that have been donated by a host of gear sponsors.
Check out the Fishy Kid site, register, and let's get our children involved!
