A new kid to fishing.

Got an unexpected face time from one of my grandsons at the lake this morning. He’s soon to be 3 years old. And was touching base with  PopPop before day school. He was letting me know he’s ready to go fishing. Will be his first time. 
Had released a couple of 12”-14” Greenies prior. Wish I would have tanked them for him to see but I never expected a call. 
Went through this with my two older grandsons years ago. Was fun but did get quite interesting at times. They have been fishing since. One loves trout fishing and would fish everyday for them. 
This weekend I guess I should let him go pick out a kids rod and reel. Make him part of the experience. 
Tuff thing with kids are their minds and concentration level are short. They vary. I find that you have to make the outing all about them. I make no attempt to fish. Put them on fish they can catch. Even if they are out for a very short time. If they catch fish only even if a few of them will keep them coming back. 
My daughters are 42 and 36 and I still have their Disney rods and reels. What they picked out. Should be interested.

You can’t put a price on this! I wish I would have had grandparents to do this with when I was younger. Time to get another one hooked!

 

You will teach him life long lessons. It’s more than about the fishing.

I didn’t have grandparents either who were into doing things like that for me either. Parents that were not much better.  But I’m not going there right now. I’ve been a black sheep for most of my life. 
I was lucky enough to have a farmer and family friend I use to work for who had me trout fishing seriously at about 10-11 yo. 
I enjoy being around my grandkids teaching them to fish and shoot clay targets (trap, skeet and sporting clays). They love it, I like spending time with them.

Remember every second of every outing. 
Remember thier face when they look up at you when they hook up. 
 

Trust me, these are the best of times!

I consider any time I can spend with my grandkids is special time. You can both benefit from this.
