Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris is challenging families to put down their digital devices and get outside this summer to discover the joys of fishing. To help connect more kids to the great outdoors, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's are donating more than 40,000 rods and reels nationwide to nonprofit organizations. The nationwide movement, Gone Fishing, features two weekends of free, family-friendly activities June 12-13 and 19-20 at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's locations across North America. Free, family-friendly activities include: • Free Catch-And-Release Ponds: Kids can experience the excitement of fishing at in-store catch-and-release ponds and earn an FLW (Fishing League Worldwide) "First Fish Certificate" to celebrate the achievement. • Free Fishing 101 Guide: Free copies of Nibbles & Bites teach the fundamentals of fishing and provide tips on best local fishing spots. The informational guide is available while supplies last. • Free Giveaways & Take-Home Crafts: After completing the catch-and-release pond, kids will receive free take-home crafts and giveaways while supplies last.
