Get Out: Go Fishing
Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 13, 2013 @ 11:25 am In Family Fun | 1 Comment
Fishing is a great outdoor sport to enjoy with children.
Despite the irony of our last name (Fisher), neither FishPapa nor I grew up in fishing families. My cousins all know their Muskies from their trout. I, on the other hand, am absolutely clueless.
A few years ago, hubs took it upon himself to learn a little, enough so that he could take the kids fishing. He researched gear, made a few trips to Walmart, chatted with folks in the fishing aisle who looked like they knew something, and then he loaded the boys up to go fishing.
I think we may even be the happy owners of Dora and Winnie-the-Pooh fishing poles.
It has become a once-a-year occurrence. And while it’s obviously not a regular gig for them, it’s one that they all enjoy. While fishing is certainly not going to offset my grocery bill anytime soon, it’s a great way for my husband and the kids to spend good times together in the great outdoors.
I realize that some folks still have snow on the ground. Come back to this series on May 1. For the rest of us, let’s find good fishing holes in our areas. My people like Palomar Mountain and Mammoth Lakes.
