SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Families at the Springfield Sportsmen’s Show Saturday were perfecting the form that helps land the big ones for the start of the fishing season.
The children enjoying the benefits of a long line of their families’ fishing enthusiasts who came before them and still enjoy the thrill of the catch.
“The excitement of it, playing with your kids and watching them enjoy that when they were growing up, I was watching them enjoy it,” Bob Gregor of Agawam told 22News.
“I like teaching my family how to be sportsmen in the great outdoors,” added Charley Moore of Montague. “I just love seeing the look on their faces.”
And from the look of it, just as many moms have an interest in teaching their sons and daughters the finer points of the well-loved family activity.
“We’ve been fishing for about four years,” Michelle Krivitkas of South Windsor, CT. told 22News. “We keep a boat and go out, she loves it, she’s been doing it since she was four.”
“I’m learning how to sail….It’s great bonding, go fishing with my kids,” said Sarah Miller of South Windsor, CT.
So much to see, so many outdoor activities to explore and fortunately for us, the Springfield Sportsmen’s Show continues throughout the weekend at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield.
The hunting and fishing show resumes Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
