Here fishy fishy fishy!

Now that the kids are back in school, the Boy Scouts have started again and the Pack that Z is a member of had a fishing event on Sunday as a way to get the boys together and possibly recruit more boys to join. We had never been fishing before, well not proper fishing with a pole. Z said he enjoyed it when they were trying to catch fish in the creek last year when we went to a campfire event the Pack had so we got him a pole for his birthday on Friday.

We got to the lake on Sunday afternoon and it was sunny and warm. The Pack leaders had some poles for the boys to use so K got to use her brothers. We tried for a while to catch fish with some worm bait but in the end we managed to catch some fish with bits of sandwich! It is fine catching a fish but trying to get it off the hook and letting it go again is a whole other matter!

K was very pleased with herself when she caught a fish but when it started wiggling around and looking like it might, gasp, get close enough to touch her, she freaked out a little and her daddy had to get it in the water again quickly! Z didn't mind and was touching the fish and sat dangling his legs over the edge of the dock we were on and putting his feet in the water.
