I took the day off so that I could.......

take my son fishing, for the first time
well I was expecting him to give it 10 minutes and then give up but he loved every minute of it, caught 2 fish at 4 and then 1 pound....
I think I have steered him into a lifetime of spending money on fishing tackle because he is certainly "hooked"



not at all bad for his first fish ever !!!! I know my first catch wasnt this damn big !



and his first pose with the little fishie - the bigger one had a lot of fight left in him and flapped away like a demented thing



it was the last day of his school holidays so it was a last treat before going back

I guess this means that im gonna have to start going fishing again

Very cool dude. My son loves to fish too but hate to handle them as they are "slimey" to him.

Thats a pretty good size Carp he caught.

You dont wanna eat that, but they are fun to catch.

Looks like he had a great time.

Re: I took the day off so that I could.......

Dude that is totally awesome!
My son is only 3-1/2, but I will be taking him fishing here as soon as it cools off.
I hope he enjoys it as much as your's did.
And I cant wait to go fishing again. Its been years.
Teaching your child to fish is a very cool thing in my book. And an awesome way to bond.
Good for the both of you.
Part of being a good dad, is doing this.
Thanks for being a good dad. The world needs more of us.

I know here in the states, many states don't require a kid to have a fishing license, so as long as Dad wasn't actually doing the fishing, they would be all good.

Re: I took the day off so that I could.......

awesome pics - we live on a little stream in Maine with some great fishing and my son is turning 6 - been a bit worried about taking him down there (not wanting him to get too brave when I'm not around) but I think this spring we will start fishing together. Cannot wait - after seeing these pics.
