Oh man! It was alot of years ago but I loved going fishing with my dad and he loved to fished.

We lived in Spokane so we fished alot of the lakes around the area. My dad also used to love to fly fish the rivers to...especially the St Joe River near St Maries Idaho. Dad did take me salmon fishing off the Oregon coast once....once. Yeah that big pancake breakfast with sausage eggs didn't stay down very long going over the Columbia River Bar at Ilwaco. Oh well

There was nothing better than that first catch. I wasn't very old and I don't really remember what the fish was but this kids reaction was probably about the same as my reaction. Very cool. Every kid should have this experience and I hope mom & dad you'll give your kids the chance to catch their first fish!
