    Default Take a kid fishin'??.......Sure

    Beautiful day in the St. John's area, decided a day out with my son was in order. Through him the flyrod and a couple snacks in the truck and headed for a little sure shot spot that I know.

    Heres a few pics of the rest of the day.

    SUPER!!! Thank you, for sharing your rather cool day with us! (okay, sorry, bad pun I know!).
    LOVE the expression, too, as he looks at his fish!?! Was that his "first ever"?
    My granddaughter, Sam and I went fishing today also and your son's expression is nearly identical to Sam's when she land a fish of her own and she's been catching them for over a year now!
    Your son, is extrememly lucky "in the dad department" and YOU, better be careful!!
    Even at only, 6, my Sammy is not shy AT ALL when it comes to giving the rest of the family a "run down and score" of each fishing trip, she and I make together. They not ONLY, "learn quick", they also "soon out fish us", even quicker!

    Great pics & thanks for sharing. Flybinder & I have had a number of conversations about his Granddaughter Sammy & my 3 year old Granddaughter Tori. Loads of fun with the young 'uns! In fact, Tori went to the Zoo today with friends, & when I called her to ask how the zoo was, she asked when we were going FISHING!
    There should be a very special package arriving here soon....I'll say nothing more until it arrives...THEN I'll post.

    FAOL..All about caring, sharing, & good friends!!
