I just talked with a client of mine who is a Mom of 3 kids. She said she was out school shopping with her kids this week. I can’t believe it’s that time already! The summer has been so beautiful thus far and it’s hard to think it might be winding down.
As the weather changes and conditions become less favorable for swimming when you come Up North, don’t forget that fishing is a wonderful alternative activity for kids and grandkids. The teaching moments go far beyond “how to bait your own hook”.
On our dock, we talk about the virtues of patience as you wait for “the big one” to come along.
We also have lessons about sharing when one fishing pole appears to be “the lucky one”.
Respect for life and following the rules comes up when the fish is too small to keep and has to be thrown back for more growing.
Keep enjoying the season and don’t stop finding ways to enjoy the bounty of what we have here. We’re so lucky to be able to share it with the next generation! – Wanda Boldon
