Go fishing

     3. Go fishing

Imagine this: relaxing on a warm sunny day at a scenic lake, dipping your toes into the cool water. What can make this scene better?  Add a fishing pole!

“Give someone a fish and they will eat for a day, teach someone to fish and they will eat for life.” Although, for most of us, fishing isn’t our main food source, it remains a source of recreation and relaxation, and it is a pretty handy life-long skill to master. Fishing is also one of few activities that spans multiple age groups. If you are old enough to hold a pole and a line, you are old enough to fish! Whether you are just learning help you get started!
