Just a quick post to show some pictures Jake is excited to share. He kept asking me if I made the 'poster' yet. I explained that is not really a poster, but a post. Yesterday we went to the fishing pond, a stocked man-made pond in a local park near downtown. We dug up worms from our yard, packed the poles and went down to fish. Jake's first cast got a bite, but no fish. After that he cast and sat for about two hours watching his bobber. It was a good lesson in patience, because after a long while the fish began to bite. Brian caught a perch and a rainbow trout. And finally, Jake's bobber went under and he grabbed his pole. He was afraid his pole would break, and he was surprised at the fight the trout put up. It was a fat 'monster' rainbow trout, about 14 inches and 3.5 pounds. Annie fished some, but she was more interested in climbing trees and picking dandelions. We also saw an osprey fly overhead with its own catch.
