Over the weekend we went to the a Kid's Fishing Clinic that was sponsored by the Florida Wildlife Commission. Poppy volunteers each year with our long time family friend and neighbor, Mr. Pete.
Poppy & Mr. Pete
There were a ton of kids, but it was well worth the wait. We learned to tie knots, about fish, habitats, tackle, and how to cast. Then at the end they gave us a rod and reel and sent us out on the pier to practice with shrimp for bait.
Here's lil' C all ready to go. Unfortunately, he wasn't quite patient enough with the process. Immediately after this picture was snapped, he and I threw in the towel and headed for the free hotdog lunch!
eWe on the other hand was a committed fisherman (or woman). She did an awesome job casting and reeling. I foresee many fun outings with her Daddy in her future.
And last but not least....here is the whole gang, minus Poppy behind the camera. A fun day for the family for sure!
