It’s been too long since I have last written, but have lots to talk about.
My first post that is overdue (this one) happened back in June, during the Free fishing weekend here in Nova Scotia.
As some may know, we always get the gear together and head 2 hours away to get family out fishing who don’t always have the chance to enjoy the activity.
Me and my boys (the little anglers) loaded up the car, early that Saturday morning and the journey began.
We started off in the same place as last year, where we had such good fortune. Everyone had fun, and Andrew (The Little Angler) caught his first little perch. He was one happy angler that day.
We spent some more time there, allowing others to try, getting some great shots of the water,
including David (The Little Angler) practicing his cast,
and others doing their best to the trout who grew wise to our ways.
After spending some time at Location 1, we decided to pack up and head about 40 minutes to another little meadow stream where there had been reports of a lot of trout activity.
It’s a beautiful location, and allowed the crew to line up at different spots along the water.
Of course, like any good day in the country, you’re going to be surrounded by bugs. Andrew had enough of swatting at mosquitoes, so put a bug hat on; and was kind enough to
As the fishing experience continued along the brook, Andrew’s Grampy took him by the hand and led him through the bumpy, grassy terrain for some fishing.
Of course I couldn’t resist getting a picture of these two together. This man (Dad) took me fishing as a kid, taught me how to cast, and was the one who got me going into my passion for angling now.
Thank you for teaching me how to fish. A quiet man, who can tell you the finer art of fishing if you ask him.
Finally, we thought we’d hop in our cars for one more trip down the road to a little river. By now, the day was nearing the end and everyone was getting tired. David had hung up his fishing rod and took up some cracker and cheese snacks. Andrew gave the rod and reel one more crack at it.
The day was enjoyable, much was experienced and memories were made. The entire family now has their own fishing licence. Taking part in the free fishing weekend with them has now paid off; and I enjoy getting the texts from them on a weekly basis telling me where they are heading fishing that evening or what they have caught.
If you haven’t purchased your licence yet, it’s never too late. It’s an absolutely wonderful way to spend time either by yourself, or with family and friends.
