Camping for us always goes hand in hand with fishing. We really like it. We try to be humane as possible. I went through a period of feeling very guilty about my pleasure in this activity. I have gotten mostly over it. I continue to try to improve my technique and am moving onto barbless hooks. Kaya has been bitten by the fishing bug big time.
He is patient and pretty good at it. I enjoy our shared pleasure in just waiting it out, together, quietly. Marlin
and Ev like it,
but not yet, to the same degree.
Anyway, lot's of pictures!
Kaya actually got pretty good at using graham crackers as bait
and then just netting fish
as they were distracted by feeding.
Ev worked at this skill for quite a while as well.
I really want to make more time for this activity, well for both camping and fishing. It's relaxing, and a pretty beautiful way to pass the hours focusing on the world and people around us.
