Arnold's mission
Teach a child to fish; you will feed them for a life time!

Materials and supplies to teach children to make fishing tackle, both online with video and in my sonís shop as well at events I attend and schools.
 It has been my sense, for many years, a lot of people cannot afford to buy supplies for their child to go fishing, with so many places so close to home with in walking distance, many creaks are stocked with fish by the MNR.

It is very surprising out of the hundreds of children I have talk to, have never had the experience to go fishing or even know what a fishing rod & reel or lure is.
Hello: My name is Arnold. I am disabled and on a small pension. since 1988, after falling 14 feet to the ground, and broke my back, working as a welder, in a bush camp, and no, I did not get a penny out of workers compensation, I live alone on a very small CPP pension, which is not much at all. I wonder all the time how I even make it, I donít go any were though.
 I love to take my many years of lifeís teachings knowledge and experience and pass them on to the less fortunate children, not only teaching them, but giving them what they need to make tackle as well a fishing rod and reel.
 My only goal left in life, is that every child have a fishing pole and some tackle, and know how to make some and use it. Children need to know how to fish, make fishing tackle, and rig there poles. Have the supplies to do so. To do this right, I need a good HD video
cameras (web Cam) for best viewing on the web and on Justin TV.
 So far for years I have paid it all out of my own pocket, I no longer can, so I am asking for help for the children. Teach a child to fish; you will feed them for a life time!

More about Arnold

In 1978 I started off as a wholesale manufacture of trailers, boat racks, transport truck tool boxes under trailers, trailer repairs, then I went to work in a bush camp as a class "A" welder until my fatal fall at work in 1988 which ended my career.

In 1998 I made the biggest mistake in my life and got married for a second time. In 2000 my now ex wife opened a business in her name were I manufactured custom made fishing tackle and she wholesaled many product lines. The marriage ended in my mind in 2004, or sooner, were I realized she wasnít in the marriage for me, she had other motives, anyway I ended the marriage in Nov. 2006 after many years of trying to not believe in my true feelings as what she was in it for. Like all, she took everything I had, and it was a lot.

My son Arthur opened up what is today known as Romppaiís, in 2008 where he has a wholesale distributor & manufacture business first and foremost, then expanded into a small retail division with a product line totally separate from the wholesale product lines.
