If you look back in time, chances are most everyone here had a special mentor that introduced us to fishing. Father, grandfather, brother, friend, neighbor, teacher, you name it. Without them, we probably would have never been bitten by the fishing bug.
Your own evolution as an angler comes full circle when you take the time to pass the torch to a newcomer to the sport, especially young people. There's nothing more satisfying than bringing a young person up the ranks of the fishing fraternity, to see their skills and passion for this piscatorial pursuit grow over the years.
Make the pledge..... and just do it!
