The Monday Morning Gallery – Early Days

A much  anticipated day finally arrived.  My son’s first day fishing with Dad and to top it off his first ever fish was a Bream!  Proud Dad right here.

  1. Cheers Ian … can’t get on your website this morning … but that looks pretty special .. can’t wait until mu grandson is old enough to whack a few fish (he’s 14 months old) Steve Teale

    • Hi Steve,
      Thanks for your feedback. I’ve feel like I’ve been waiting more than two and a half years to have that moment with him and what was even more daunting was the feeling of not being able to deliver a fish for Luca or even worse that he wouldn’t enjoy the experience. It’s a bit hard to explain to a two and a half year old that you don’t always catch them, lucky for us we did catch some and he hasn’t stopped talking about getting out there again. Funny thing is when he did catch that fish I think I was more excited than he was. Mum was just about to drive off after dropping him off at the ramp and she heard me across the bay over the southerly change which just started coming through.
      I had some good advice the other week from Tim Morgan as well as previous experience with Greg’s children and that is that you need other things to keep them entertained when it’s a bit quiet. Like food, letting him play with my new culling clips 🙂 or just letting him pretend to drive the boat. Good luck with your grandson.

    • Thanks Roberta, It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait to get out there with him again soon. I think it has given me a new a whole new perspective.

      Ian.
