FlatsWorthy

Meet Nicholas Ragusin, FlatsWorthy Youth Ambassador

What grade are you in and where do you go to school?  I am a 6th grade student at Seadrift Jr. High School. What do you like most about fishing?  I like the enjoyment of going out and seeing the water. How did you get into fishing?  My Grandpa and my Dad took me fishing. What is your favorite place to fish?  I like to wade fish at Boggy Bayou in Port O’Connor. What conservation issue is important to you?  I do not like seeing people take too many fish because a lot of people fish and if everyone did it there will not be any fish left.  I am also concerned about pollution getting worse and harming the bays. How did you become associated with Flatsworthy?  I learned about FlatsWorthy at my Calhoun County 4-H Sportfishing meeting and I became a student member. What do you think is the most important thing that Flatsworthy can do for young anglers?  I think FlatsWorthy should try to provide more opportunities for kids to fish.  I also think they should keep working on protecting fish habitat and practicing conservation.

Jere Parrish Youth Stewardship Fund Established

FlatsWorthy is honored to announce the creation of the Jere Parrish Youth Stewardship Fund. Jere was a dedicated member of the fly-fishing community in many arenas. He was loved and respected by all.

The Future of Fishing

Kids today are the anglers of tomorrow, and FlatsWorthy supports programs to educate young anglers. Teaching kids to Respect the Resource is a key part of ensuring the habitat is healthy for generations to come. FlatsWorthy spent time working with the 4-H Club of Aransas County this summer. The enthusiasm of the youth was contagious. FlatsWorthy will continue working with 4-H as they develop their Sports Fishing Project. 3 dates are planned, so look for volunteer opportunities to come. FlatsWorthy also supports the efforts on the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Celebration. We had a great time last year, and we will be there again this year on October 19th. ANWR also participates in the Every Kid in a Park program, which gives free access to 4th graders. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has many resources available for young anglers.  In addition, fishing is free to all ages in Texas state parks. What a great way to introduce youth to the outdoors and teach them about angler respect. What are you doing to encourage youth to be FlatsWorthy? We’d love to hear from you!
