The One that Got Away

“Just one more cast, okay dad?”

This weekend Parker and I went fishing together. Let’s just say for now that it was more about the experience and the time together then the fish. Being particularly void of actual fish, at least on the end of our poles, I have no tall tales of fish that we caught. At least not on day one.

Yes, despite the dismal catch, we did learn stuff. The nice thing about the fishing community is that they are generally pretty friendly and willing to share their experience and knowledge. Armed with said newly gained knowledge (and a social fishing app, because one cannot do anything without a social app nowadays) we rushed down to the local sporting goods store to augment our trout/salmon focused tackle box. Apparently what we are targeting are large mouth bass.  Despite this fishless day, we are better equipping ourselves and will return another day.
