Fishing

By Abel N. (8 years old)

It was a beautiful, sunny day yesterday.  The weather was just perfect for fishing and that was what we did.  We brought along our fishing rods, baits and a big bucket to hold our catch.

There were a few families already fishing at the pond when we arrived. A little boy squealed with delight when he reeled in a fish.  I looked at him enviously and could not wait to get my line in the water.

After hooking a wriggling earthworm, I cast the line into the water and settled down to wait patiently for a fish to bite.  Very soon, my line was jerked tight.  Filled with both exhilaration and anticipation, I quickly reeled in the line.  To my disappointment, it was only a small fry.

Recasting the line, I idly observed the other anglers.  Some of the adults had caught some big fish.  A loud cheer rang out when a tall man snagged a 10-pounder.  In the end, I only managed to catch three small fries.  It did not matter whether I caught a big or a small fish because I had enjoyed myself tremendously.  I could not wait to go fishing again.  Just like a pianist who needs much practice to perfect her scales so does an angler if he wants to snag a 30-pounder!

 

Some very proud anglers with their fine catch.
