    Default Kids and pinks

    Took my 2 oldest out for their first real salmon fishing today. Ocean bright pinks (almost). The perfect starter salmon. They are 3 and 5yrs old. I was three when I reeled in my first fish and it was a 14 inch grayling. My 3 yr old has been reeling in dollies since she was barely 2 but this was an absolute milestone for her. The oldest one had quite the whopper and it took her 10 to 15 minutes to land it. Really fun to watch almost like watching a grown man fight a 50lbs king. I posted a pic of both of their fish.

    nice pics! Just moved here almost 2 weeks ago (after working a summer in 2002 and falling in love) and took my kids out for their first outing on Friday. Nothing like a kid catching their first fish! My boy is almost 4 and my girl almost 2. These little planters provided 90 minutes of fun (and from what I hear, 90 minutes fishing for a 4 and 2 year old is really good lol) at Kepler lake. Gotta love the excitement after she caught her first fish

    Default Fishing with Dad

    The joy of fishing with your dad never ends. I had one of the best days of fishing out with my dad yesterday. It helps that we loaded up on fish but in the end it was nice to get out and spend a day in the boat just father and son. As a bonus I helped my dad catch his first two salmon on a fly rod.
