Fishing

Since meeting and marrying a guy from the west coast who loves fishing, I have also learned how to fish. I even touch them! This is one of my favourite places to fish– the Clearwater River near Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada.  One of the most delicious species of fish lives here: Walleye. Also, this is a Heritage River, and there is no industry along the river.

Here I am, after a very wet stormy afternoon on the water. My older son snapped this photo of us from shore as we took a final loop before loading the boat onto a trailer. I have so many great memories of family fishing trips on this river, as well as many other places in Canada.

One of the funniest things that has ever happened is when one of my sons dropped his fishing rod into the river when a fish pulled on the line. My husband cast his line out, in hopes of snagging it. He did! He reeled it in, and handed the rod back to our son who pulled in a giant Northern Pike! Now, that is a great fish tale.
