I absolutely love fishing. I really do….
I grew up fishing as a child when we would go camping each year. And although my sister and brother would catch their share of fish, I never did….
It was really frustrating because I was using the same bait and fishing right next to them. So as I grew up, I was happy to leave it behind.
Until we started spending time up in a small town in Arizona along Route 66 called Williams. You see, my sister-in-law’s family owns some cabins up in the woods there and they graciously allow us to stay there each summer.
Close by the cabins are some great places to go fishing and 4 years ago, I caught my first fish. It was a decent size rainbow trout and I was as excited as a little girl….I had finally caught my first fish!
So ever since, we spend time fishing up in Williams every year.
Sometimes we have to leave because of thunderstorms, like the one that was coming in the photo above.
The kids love fishing too and my husband is just wonderful about putting worms on our hooks….I won’t touch them 😉
Last year, we caught 18 fish in a period of two hours…..I caught 5.
But my son caught the most of all of us….6!
Even if we don’t catch any fish, I enjoy sitting and enjoying my beautiful and peaceful surroundings. Sometimes in the midst of my busy life, I wish that I could just take off for a couple of hours and fish.
You know what? I really could….we have stocked lakes just minutes away 🙂
So, do you like to fish?
Where is your favorite place to go?
