During the warm summer months we are always looking for fun, easy ways to get our kids outside and unplugged. The TV and video games seem to have such control over their lives but it’s amazing how quickly they forget about all that when a little bit of outdoor adventure is involved.
One of the things we have always talked about doing to unplug and spend time as a family creating memories is to head over to the local park to fish. Well, my kids and husband would fish, I would watch and take pictures.
Shakespeare and Stren has made it super easy for us to enjoy an afternoon at the pond!
Shakespeare has been a leader in quality, affordable fishing tackle since 1897 and to this day they have anticipated the needs of families and people of all experience levels. Their objective is to make fishing easy and enjoyable.
The Shakespeare “Catch More Fish” fishing combo sets have everything we need to enjoy a successful fishing adventure. They take the guesswork out of making sure you have what you need by including it in the kit, plus the reels come spooled with Stren fishing line. Simply attach and bait the hook and you are ready to fish!
Stren fishing line is made in the USA, learn more by watching the video below.
The Shakespeare “Catch More Fish” combos come in a variety of different types depending upon the type of fishing you are doing and they even have combos designed for youth and for women.
My kids and I headed out to the park before lunchtime with our Shakespeare “Catch More Fish” combos and a family friend to help bait the hooks and throw the fish back in because my husband wasn’t available to join us. I was amazing at how quickly he had the rods setup to fish. Everything we needed was in the kit!
It took less than 5 minutes and my kids had their lines in the water waiting for the fish to bite.
It didn’t take long before they had figured out how to use the reels, I was super impressed by how easy it was for them to use.
They looked like pros, like they have been fishing for years!
And boy were the fish biting! The bait that came with the “Catch More Fish” kit seemed to work really well.
My daughter was super excited when she caught her first fish…and the 10 or so that came after. She had a blast!
My son had a great time too, he focused on trying to cast his line farther out in the water.
He got pretty good at it!
Although I do think my daughter caught more fish than he did.
Aside from the fact that I won’t go near a hook or a live fish, I really think that the Shakespeare “Catch More Fish” combo sets make fishing as easy as possible, especially for someone as inexperienced as I am.
And they really did catch more fish!
We had such a great time fishing with our new Shakespeare fishing kits and created some memories that will last a lifetime. I also think we created a new summer tradition! Fishing is relaxing, allows you to connect with your family and really is a super affordable hobby.
