Took our graddaughter fishing at St. Vrain today and the catching was non stop from 10 to 2 when we left. She caught around 50 by herself I couldn't fish she was catching them so fast. She finally told me that she was ready to go because it wasn't even a challenge anymore LOL.
Busted an opening with a weight and rope thanks to another fisherman and the fun was on.

I caught about 10 before I got bored and just let her fish and have a ball. She said that she was going to tell her friends and teacher, that likes to fish too, how she did this weekend. She was still all grins, smiles and laughs this morning LOL.

I've taken my 5 year old fishing so much that she stopped liking it :CRY:
She started a dinner survey last night, so our additions were,
Us: "Do you love fishing?"
Her: "No"
Us: "Do you love camping"
Her: "Yes"
Well.... ok.
