Special Fishing Patch Program

This page ran on the homepage of the Council website during May 2012 as part of a Natonal Promotion for the different fishing merit badges.  This opportunity is still available.

Fishing Merit Badges, Patches, and Special Opporunities

Check out this great website that wants to help Scouts earn the Fishing Merit Badge and temporary patches.  There are three great patches that can be earned at Take Me Fishing. What's great about these patches is that they can be earned by both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.  Units utilizing the "Take Me Fishing" Program are encouraged to send comments and results to the webmaster at chumash90@cox.net.
