In this first video of a three-part series we’ll show you how to catch your first fish. The equipment needed will cost you less than $100, and most everyone can find a local dock where you can wet a line and catch a few “keepers”.

Topics we cover include:
– Buying a fishing rod and license
– How to rig your tackle
– Bait: hooking a minnow
– Casting for the first time & hooking a fish
– Removing the hook and keeping the fish fresh

Fishing can be an enjoyable and relaxing activity. Make sure you check out Parts 2 and 3 in this series which cover filleting a fish and cooking it. Chef Lukas Leaf shares a simple recipe for Panfish Tacos. It’s a great way to turn a couple of fish into a great meal. Once you watch the video leave a comment, or check out the fishing discussion in the Forum area of the site.
