Fishing Games

There are an infinite variety of games that can be made from a hook, a line, and a pole that will leave the contestants as breathless and open-mouthed as a fisherman's true story.

Fashion the hooks from coat-hanger wire, paper clips, and open safety pins. Make the fish from cloth, inner tubes, cardboard, balloons, or wood. Use a cardboard carton, nail keg, barrel, or dartboard for the ocean bottom or trout stream. The players can catch the "fish" by hooking them, lifting them, trapping them, or spearing them (with darts). They score by standing in the center of a circle and casting into several different ponds, by standing on boxes or stools and trapping the fish, or by just catching as many as they can out of one "lake." Each "fish" could contain a message describing some task that a player has to perform before he can return to fish again. Or each fish could have a point value written on it; the winner could be either the group or the individual player with the largest score at the end of a given period of time.
