Grayson and Slade learning how to fish at Lake Cachuma
This was a day of fishing lessons... Our granddaughter Grayson who is 3 had been asking her Papa to go fishing. We were camping at Lake Cachuma, off Hwy 154, between Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez, California. Slade is our 2 year old grandson.
Both with their tackle boxes in hand took the walk up the trail to the dock with their papa to have their first lesson in fishing. Both poles were Ugly Sticks (only the best according to Papa) and rigged, but had no hooks. Since this was their first time Papa wanted them to practice safely. LOL.
Both of them were very focused. Grayson was very determined and learned how to reel in and cast that day. Slade learned how to reel in and to fill his belly with Gummy Worms. Obviously no fish were caught that day but the lessons learned will be with them the rest of lives. Our greatest blessings these days come from our grandchildren.Jason's Response:
Hi Amy,Congratulations on taking Second Place

. What a wonderful picture and story! Thank you for participating.
I love the fact that you are taking the kiddos out fishing. Those times are great learning experiences for children and help build excellent character. Along with the photos, every one of you will be able to cherish those memories for a lifetime.
What a great day of fishing lessons,... and I'm sure there will be many more to come.The Art Of A Little Fishin'
