Saturday morning, we all jumped the car for a family outing. We decided to hike/fish a stream in a nearby valley.
After looking at google maps, I had a high hopes there would be cows and farm equipment nearby that would be like a gold mine to my son. I was right. Mom had him most of the time in the carrier, but the last 1/2 hour was spent exploring. There were crickets, a frog, feathers, flowers, cows, tractors and rocks. it was a 19 month old's dream.
I caught plenty of chubs, but no trout. The pockets of fishable water were pretty stretched out, so the opportunities were limited. My goal was just to show David a fish and I did. He didn't seem to impressed with the fish, but he liked the outing. Hopefully we will get out a couple more times before the season ends.
For now, I've got an awesome new fishing buddy. Maybe I'll have to buy him a tenkara USA Rhodo, so he can start learning the ropes.
