As a child, my father took me fishing about once every two or three weeks. I have extremely fond memories of boating across the lakes near my home and catching trout for dinner. My father and I spent hours fishing, and we had a great time, even if we only caught minnows and the occasional spare tire. When I had a son of my own, I started the same fishing tradition. I even started arranging offshore fishing trips to make the adventures as exciting as possible. Most people do not fish any longer, but the sport can build patience and a love of nature. Fishing is also a great way for you to build a strong relationship with your children away from the smart phones, tablets, and computers that rule their lives. If you have never gone fishing before, then read my blog and start learning how to fish.
