Today, one of Lon's fondest wishes came true! He got to fish! For real fish!
They dug up a bucket of worms and they were ready to go try to catch a fish.
Before we left for the lake, we looked around the gardens and the back yard. Lon found the coolest bamboo pole. It was not too tall, so we told him he could keep it.
Lon is thrilled with his new stick
He would still hook weeds, but he was getting better
Lon said he wanted to catch 5 fish
removing the hook from another fish ! That makes four
Lon met his goal for the day! WOW
As Lon kept trying his confidence level
increased. He kept doing better and better
with his casting. He kept interested in it, and he
wants to fish again soon.
Next time we bring a change of clothes and a couple of plastic
bags for clothes and shoes.
He went home dressed only in the orange fishing vest.
I did get a photo of that but he asked me, please, don't
post that Mom!
He very much enjoyed himself. He is going to get a real
tackle box and some tackle for his birthday
