Here is hubby helping Jordan who has snagged the bottom.
The area across the road. The mill is behind all of the trees and shrubs. Golden rod was blooming proficiently in the area. The sumachs are beginning to turn red. Fall is in the air.
Brandon and Jordan sitting in the lawn chairs, relaxing and watching their bobbers.
The pond is very picturesque. Chickory and wild carrot (Queen Anne's Lace) were all in bloom.
Across the pond men were doing repairs on a pontoon plane. They never did get it going while we were there. I was hoping we would get to see it take off.
The water flows under the bridge and into the mill race. I find the sound of running water very soothing. This is where I chose to drown my worm.
Jordan caught the first fish. It isn't very big but size isn't what matters...it's the fun of catching the fish.
Brandon has a bite. He's out of the chair in an instant and trying to set the hook. It was the one that got away.
Jordan caught more than he bargained for. His line and bobber are in the tree. I was able to get it down with all line, tackle and even the worm in place.
Ah, sweet success. Though not big, it was the largest fish of the day...a rock bass. Nothing like catching a fish to make a boy smile.
I hope you enjoyed coming along on our fishing trip. We stayed out until almost noon. We needed sweaters early in the morning but it soon warmed up. The boys enjoyed being out in the fresh air and doing a bit of fishing.
