Day #5 - Fishing family fun

OK, so it helps to have a daddy who is a professional fishing guide -but we are thankful to be heading into the time of year when he has time to fish with the boys. There is much to be gained from young men spending time out on the boat - in the wild - with their dad. We live in an area - and make a living fishing - so it's pretty convenient. But, no matter where you live there are ponds, streams, parks and wonderful places to fish. 

I have fond memories of fishing from a canoe with a cane pole on the river with my daddy as a little girl. Another fun childhood memory is fishing with stick poles and bread. I recently had the opportunity to share this "skill" with the boys at a friends pond. They fished for hours - happily. It may not have been as fancy as fishing with daddy - but it was a great outdoor experience and a memory we love. 

If you get a chance - I hope you'll add Family Fishing to your bucket list this summer! Girls and boys alike will cherish the time spent quietly stalking fish and comfortable conversation - not to mention the excitement of bringing in the big one! 

. . . or the tall fish tales about the one that got away! 

Do you have any fun fish stories or childhood memories of fishing? 
Are you planning to share time fishing with your own kiddos?

We love fishing, but sadly haven't been much lately. I also have fond memories of my dad taking me. Fishing makes for some wonderful memories. :)

We love fishing too! However, we don't often catch anything. ;)

I remember going fishing with my dad when I was younger. He used to go out for hours and he just loved it. I want to make memories like those with my kids.
