Extracurricular Means Extra Time in the Outdoors for High School Students
Kentucky Afield Radio:
August means back to school. In high school, it also means back to teenage fun such as sports, dating, dances, cool clothes and fishing. Yes, fishing. The Fly Casting and Tying Club is one of the more popular extracurricular activities at Lincoln County High School. It may not always compete with the thrill of that first car or first kiss, but it is worth a conversation with kids and sponsor Hank Gevedon for a lesson in why so many students - girls included - are hooked.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) manages, regulates, enforces and promotes responsible use of all fish and wildlife species, their habitats, public wildlife areas and waterways for the benefit of those resources and for public enjoyment. KDFWR, an agency of the Commerce Cabinet, has an economic impact to the state of $4.8 billion annually. For more information on KDFWR, visit our web site at fw.ky.gov.
