Simply Fish

Blog 9-27 It is only fitting that around Memorial Day I should do a blog about fish. For as long as I can remember Memorial Day weekend has been great fishing at the pier of Tree-Hollow Cottage on the shores of the "Sea of Waubesa"...aka the "Center of the Universe".

There is something very special about seeing your child catch his or her first fish. For our boys and our grandchildren it happened to be age three.

Our son Scott, circa 1982, proudly holding up his first fish. Our son Todd, circa 1984, proudly displaying his first fish. Our son Aaron, circa 1994, proud of his first catch and a few proud family members surrounding him.May 3013-001 And fishing continued for our sons over the years...May 30131 Similarly, our three grandchildren, Lucas, Matias and Charlotte all pulled in their first fish at age three.Web site blog 9 fishing Countless family members and friends have fished from this same pier year after year...May 30132 Blog 9-6 Blog 9-9 Blog 9-46 DSC_0020-009 Even the dogs want a piece of the action.

How amazing that so many have caught their first fish at 3 years old! I'm in awe of your organization that you could find and post your son's first fish pictures with the more recent ones. Thanks for sharing.
