SUMMERFIELD, N.C. -- He mastered the art of the tackle in the NFL, now he's teaching kids the art of bait and tackle.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end and outdoor enthusiast Brett Keisel met with kids for a fishing clinic at the Taylor Turner Hatchery Pond located at Lake Higgins in Summerfield.

The event was sponsored by outdoor retail store Field & Stream.

The kids were all smiles as Keisel cheered them on as they reeled in their prized catches!

Keisel played for the Steelers for 13 years. He retired in 2014.
