"I CAN'T THINK OF A BETTER WAY TO PASS THE TIME OF DAY"
Do you have favorite memories of catching your first fish? or the time you spent outdoors with those you love even if the fish weren't biting?
My daughters had a chance to finally fish with Papa, which they had anticipated for a long, long time. He fishes for Marlin, Big Tuna and other fightin' fish, but this day was special as he was fishing with them!
It didn't matter that the catch and release were only tiny bluegill or crappie, they had a blast being outside with Papa on the dock at Claytor Lake State Park. The best part of the whole experience was watching my daughter squirm more than the worm she was putting on the hook! "eeeeeeew!" I think were her exact words.
