    Why We Fish

    I'm a fishing mom, but I know it's my fishing dad, grandfathers and uncles who are inspiring my son to fish -- they are all smiling from above and having a good laugh, as well. Here's something I wrote last year for a local magazine on getting back to fishing, with my son leading the way. https://www.centralpennparent.com/2017/adventures-in-fishing-with-my-10-year-old-son-suburban-resistance/

    I knew we were in deep when he asked for gift cards to a local tackle shop for his birthday instead of video games (which I am NOT complaining about. ) His other hobby is ice hockey, so this kid is going to need a few part time jobs to support his habits. He already has the truck and boat that he's going to drive picked out. Kid's obsessed, lol.

    51 yo mom to three kids. We live near Harrisburg, PA, but we have an old (very old) cabin near North Pond, Sandy Creek. My dad used to fish all the time, until he passed away in 1999. My youngest kid is 11yo, and last year, he took to fishing with a vengeance. My husband does not fish and has no interest, so by default, I'm now an angler, as well. We've been learning slowly, mostly hauling bass out of the lakes and rivers in the Central PA area. Last week, my son took part in his first bass tournament, and at the tournament, he learned about all the new rods and reels he needs. If anything, this hobby is encouraging him to find ways to make money to pay for more gear. We head up to the lake once a year, usually, but now that we're back into fishing (with my dad watching over), we'll be up more often. No boat (yet...and not for a while), but we're trying out the creeks and rivers in the area. My son desperately wants to get on the big water and catch trout and salmon. We're working on it. Hope to learn from everyone on the forum and looking forward to getting up to the lake in a week or so.
