Teach a boy to fish…

May 16, 2011

Last week, D’Arcy& Alex participated in a learn-to-fish program with the Cubs & Scouts.  The first night was spent in a classroom, learning about fishing & safety, and the second night they all got to go to a nearby pond to try their luck.

By all accounts, they had a great time…

Alex had what some might call “beginner’s luck”…

He reeled it in, and with some help netting it…

Made what some people might consider the “catch of a lifetime”!

A FOUR POUND Rainbow Trout!

Most of the cubs & scouts had beginner’s luck!  Alex actually caught three fish in total, but gave his two smaller ones to my parents.

I think he’s “hooked” on fishing now!

We grilled his trout on the bbq at high heat, wrapped in foil and stuffed with slices of lemon, lime, orange & dill.  It was served with Basmati rice and spinach salad and was delicious!  It served six – with leftovers!

* D’Arcy didn’t catch anything…
