My boys love fishing. It's not just about the fishing though, it's about the bonding. Mike could happily spend hours just sitting on the side of a river or lake listening to the water with a fishing rod next to him with no bait on the line. He finds it so relaxing. So, he bought Flynn his very first fishing rod over summer last year. Flynn had been wanting to go fishing for years, but let's face it, I'm just no good at it and would need lessons before I even considered taking him, so this was the perfect way for the guys to bond and spend quality time together. They fished in the pond at the house in Kentucky, and then, we hired Mike's fishing guide to take us out onto Lake Cumberland for a fun day of fishing. Since then, the boys have been fishing as often as they can. Jayden hadn't been fishing though since my dad took him a few years ago during a trip to Australia. Unfortunately, with his work and college schedule, he hasn't always been able to make the trips with us. This summer though, we plan on fishing a lot with both boys.
Mike and I bought both the boys their own fishing rods recently to keep here at the house in California, so one day after school, and when Jay didn't have to work, we headed down to Oceanside Pier for an afternoon of fishing. We had tried to go here a couple of times before but we all finally found ourselves with a free afternoon and the weather was perfect, it was overcast and cool, with the bonus of the local night market happening so we could grab a quick dinner afterward.
