    KETCHUM, Okla. - Psst. Mom, Dad. If you're ready to take the little person
    in your house on his or her first fishing trip, here are three words of

    Just have fun.

    That's the main message in a series of do's and don'ts prepared by Hooked on
    Fishing International (HOFI). HOFI is the expert on the subject of taking
    kids fishing. Every year the Ketchum, Okla. organization, host of the
    Wal-Mart Kids All-American Fishing Derby, puts on more than 1,800 fishing
    events for 300,000 kids in all 50 states.

    The reward for a successful trip easily outweigh the risk of failure. Seeing
    your little angler have a good time, maybe even catch a fish, is a
    significant reward, to be sure. But, the real reward for parents is knowing
    that a successful trip could become the spark that fires a lifetime of
    fishing, the back-to-nature platform that teaches respect for the land,
    water and everything that lives. It follows, too, that some of those trips
    will be family fishing trips that build a store of shared experiences and

    To up the chances for success on your young anglers outing, HOFI
    suggests you consider the following guidelines.

    § Do use live bait to increase the chances of catching a fish. While
    catching a fish does not make the difference between a fun or lousy time,
    the thrill of feeling a fish on the line will just about guarantee that your
    little angler will want to come back for more. For safety's sake,  the grownups
    should handle putting the worms and minnows on sharp hooks. Incidentally,
    HOFI records show that worms and minnows catch 80 percent of the fish at the
    Wal-Mart Kids All American Fishing Derbies.

    § Don't ever forget to bring lots of delicious snacks. As you
    probably know, a hungry tummy trumps just about everything. Keep wet wipes
    on hand for use before and after snacks.

    § Do give the child his own fishing outfit, a gesture that will make
    this day even more memorable for the adults and child. There is a practical
    aspect to this, too. For short anglers, short rods are easier to handle.

    § Do bring a camera and shoot lots of pictures. This day will live in
    the memory for a long time but the details will come flooding back, even a
    generation later, when you haul out the family photo album.

    § Also, do bring sunscreen, insect repellent, and first aid basics.

    § Don't drive too far. The object is to minimize the times back seat
    auto passengers ask the front seat, "Are we there yet?"

    § Don't fish too long. Leave a little fishing desire in the bank for
    the next fishing trip.

    One more time, remember, have fun and keep it simple!

    These are the same do's and don'ts that HOFI dispenses to the adult
    volunteers and parents who plan and supervise local events in the Wal-Mart
    Kids All-American Fishing Derby program. Parents can go to the official web
    site - www.kids-fishing.com -- to find the derby closest to them. The Derby
    Locator section also provides the phone number of the local derby contact to
    call for additional information

    Organizations interested in hosting an event in 2004 can register on the web
    site. HOFI provides a free kit which contains all of the items necessary to
    put on a local derby, including, an organizer handbook, prizes and goodies
    for each derby participant. In addition to Wal-Mart, the events are funded
    and supported by Bar-S Foods Company; Dubble Bubble Bubble Gum; Eagle Claw; 
    EverStart Batteries; FishingWorld.com; Fujifilm; ConAgra Foods; Johnson & 
    Johnson First Aid Pocket Pals; Kellogg’s; Kraft Foods; Laker Fishing 
    Tackle; Berkley Trilene and Berkley PowerBait; and Zebco.
