Fishing for Awards

At the Feb 2012 Roundtable, the Guest Speaker talked about the importance of ceremonies to the boys.  He demonstrated a ceremony he uses in his Pack, Goin' Fishin'.

You know this fishing game, where you hang up some blue material, maybe you embellish with pictures of fish or a fishing net, or maybe you leave the material blank.  The cub holds the rod, and someone throws over the hook, which is a clothes pin or something similar.

A person behind the "water" then puts the award card (holding the award) or the patch into the clothes pin and yanks the line, letting the cub and attending Cubmaster know that the cub has caught something.  They bring up the line, or reel it in, to obtain the award.
