Backyard Bass

Pros:
Cons:
It was the #1 hit at our annual Fishing Weekend. We used it to teach casting techniques with various types of fishing equipment. It easily adapts to the skill levels of the participants. The instructors were able to challenge themselves as well as their students.

Backyard Bass a birthday hit!

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
Excellent product and was a success with the children and adults. The fishes were heavy and for young children a heavy rubber material vs. the hard plastic would be a better idea.

Also a little pricy for what they are so don't plan to outfit all my families with them, but this was a special birthday and required something special.

Thank you for the product.

Rating:
Pros:
  • Unique product
Cons:
  • Top can separate from the bottom.
It is nice to be able to receive a good price on quantity. The small box was a pleasant surprise and all the fish were in the package. Both kids and adults enjoy catching the fish. They hold up pretty well, I have used some for nearly 20 years.

Backyard Bass engaging residents at the River Rally

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
I've used Backyard Bass as a teaching tool at various other positions, but this was the first set for my current organization. Traditionally our audience has been retirees, but we are striving to work with youth and these Bass were the perfect way to encourage new and younger residents to check out our area at a recent River Rally. They were a huge hit! We added some fish id facts to the back to connect to some fish surveys we do with another group and adults and kids loved flipping their fish over to check out the species and if their populations were healthy throughout the bays. These are great and so worth it for other water quality/environmental organizations. The only problem is getting kids to go when their parents are ready.

Backyard Bass Kicks Ass!

Pros:
Cons:
Aside from my facetious title, I do mean it. This product is SO great for outdoor environmental education. I first tried it attending a workshop in central NC and now bought my own set for my own programs. I recently used it at a public State Park event this past Saturday and it was the most popular activity we had for over 400 people that showed up! Great Stuff!

Cub Scout Camp

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
I run a fishing theme area at our Council's Cub Scout Camp. In previous years we've practiced casting into kiddie pools. All the boys heard was a splash of they hit the pool. With the Backyard Bass Set, the boys get to reel in fish. It was hard getting them to go to their next station. And we got several comments on our evaluations that said casting was their favorite activiy. Very pleased!

Fantastic Product!

Rating:
Pros:
  • Quality
Cons:
  • Versatility
I work with fishing programs and love these guys! They are perfect for teaching the kids about casting distance and accuracy. When reeling in, they are easy to slide, as long as they are on a tarp or slick surface. They don't do very well on rock or grass. Not all styles of casting plugs work in these, I have found the small 3/8 oz casting plugs that are a teardrop and hexagon shape work the best! They are a very durable set.

Great activity!

Bought this for my son, his Cub Scout troop, and my classroom. Great to practice casting. Put a picture of a fish on the bottom, then have kids look up that fish, bag, and length limits to learn the rules and regulations.

I have used the educator's set for helping to teach casting to boy scouts and works great. I'm looking forward to using this set for teaching some of the younger cub scouts too.
