First Rod Touch/ First Fish Caught

My father would take me to the Reservoir to fish. We seldom caught fish but we made up for it by my father teaching me how to cast. I learned to cast over my shoulder, behind my back and straight ahead. What I remember most was that my father whom was a very busy man took the time to spend it with me. I have carried on this tradition by spending time with my children and teaching them how to fish. Now my father spends time with my children teaching them the joys of fishing.
