With $2.00 nightcrawlers and a fishing rod in the trunk, we headed out this afternoon to do a little fishing.
We went to a youth pond, but it was a good place for dear son to practice his casting while hubby baited the hooks.
As they got the gear set up, I walked around the pond to see if I could find anything pretty.
There were plenty of wildflowers...
(wildflower or weed depends on your point of view)...
and a Canadian Goose as big as a frozen Thanksgiving turkey.
The little one fished...
Fishing really is a lesson in patience. Cast your line and wait.
We were hoping for some "live action" (any Turtleman fans?)...
but, in the end, no fish were caught.
They got a few nibbles and lost a worm or two.
Better luck next time little one.
"Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach a man (boy) to fish..."; you know the saying.
