My wonderful husband and resident master fisherman posted over on his blog this same subject. Naturally, as his better half, it is my job, nay, my pleasure to bring you the following photos and expound upon this very entertaining subject. From a mom's point of view...
1. Be ready to get back in the car and go home. Especially if the only things that bite after 30 minutes or so are trees, weeds, or floating trash. When this happens, try not to rub it in the fact that you won money in a fishing competition when you were 9, and it was with a real, live fish.And that you are female.
That doesn't really solve any problems.
2. Take a camera. Because later on, you will want those pictures.
For all the world to see.
3. It's a good idea to fish where other entertainment is available. That way, when dad forgets to bring enough poles for everyone, you won't die of boredom watching him untangle all the poles he did bring.
4. Yep. All of them.
5. Don't get mad at dads. The line will get tangled, or caught, and you might have to help them find their lures 15 times. Be patient and loving, remembering that you want them to have a good time so they will want to go out again.
