Last Saturday

While Matt was at the drag races on Saturday,
the boys and I went to Loch Lomond with
Giselle and Brenda to do some fishing.
It was a fun afternoon getting reaquainted with
an old sport for us girls and a new adventure for the boys.

Ezra had a blast with the fishing pole. We
eventually took the hook off so we didn't have
to worry about anyone getting snared
(although that was a problem later on
between Brenda and Giselle, sorry, I didn't get a picture).

This is the lone fish we, I mean, Giselle caught. It definitely made the trip worth it. We threw him back, bleeding and all (we couldn't get the hook out). He swam away okay enough.

Giselle bought her annual fishing license, so I'm sure she'll be out there some more if anyone wants to join her!

Sounds like a fun day!

But Giselle threw back a fish with a hook?!? Where is her sense of compassion for that poor fish?!?

I was thinking the same thing, Leah! How sad.... Why didn't you guys fry it up to eat?

Did you see the size of that thing?? By the time we took the head and tail off and filleted it, there would be nothing left! I thought it was better to let the fish go peacefully back to it's home. Maybe he survived?? He'll have a good story to tell his friends.
