Catching a Fish a Day

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

This is Passport to Texas

March 31 marked the end of Keith Miller’s quest to catch a fish a day for a year.

02—I just love fishing that much.

Miller began his mission on April 1, 2011. When I spoke with him in mid-March 2012, he remained confident he would make good on his fish-a-day pledge.

10—Being confident is a huge factor to being successful at this. And so far so good? So far. So far; I try not to jinx myself too much.

Keith Miller’s pledge to reel in any kind and any size fish using lures only—goes beyond his personal passion for the sport. It’s about showing families how easy and fun it is to connect with nature through angling.

20—I really just wanted to have some sort of positive impact on society, and reached out to Texas Parks and Wildlife, and they were very excited. They wanted me to be involved with a lot of their Go Fish events, and a lot of their activities involving kids and getting kids and families out fishing. This was a no brainer for me.

Miller’s committed his time and energy to the Fish-a-Day project without compensation or reward, other than seeing the smiles on children’s faces after they catch their first fish.

07—To help a kid go out and catch their first fish, and to watch them reel it up—to watch that excitement—it is just outstanding.
