Kid's Fishing and Education is please to announce a new managing director. 


Effective November 15, 2017; Emily Stocking will assume the role of managing director.


Hey Everyone! I thought I’d take a few seconds to introduce myself. I’m Emily Stocking; wife to Dillon, and mom to Kynlee (8) and Jase (5). I’m honored to be joining the Kids Fishing and Education team, as the managing director. In addition to my role for Kids Fishing, I am the program manager for Golden Valley Door of Hope and am a Licensed Counselor at Child’s Play Therapy.

I’ve lived in Clinton, MO since I was 6 and I’ve been around hunting and fishing that entire time. As a kid, my parents owned Everhart’s Tackle and Sporting Goods. I very much enjoyed my time spent working in the store and listening to fish stories! I can’t tell you how many thousands of jigs I’ve packaged in my life.      The smell of garlic scent still takes me back to those days.

Dillon and I have enjoyed many hours on the boat catching fish (don’t worry I usually catch the most). There's nothing better than the days we're able to take the kids out with us. We’ve watched several amazing Missouri sunsets from the bow of the boat as a family.

I’m so excited about this opportunity because I see the value in providing outdoor events to kids and their families. I also love the scholarship opportunities offered to students. Combining my passions of outdoors, education, and kiddos is a dream come true!

Be on the lookout for more information about our plans for the 2018 season! ?
