I spent many years as a kid growing up on a Texas bayou nearGalveston. We fished day and night for anything that swam in thewater. We mostly used cane poles and beat up rods and reels, but wecaught and ate a lot of fish. We moved away from the bayou when I turned13 and I never really made the time to fish again. I went to school, worked,traveled, etc.
About four years ago I started getting busy with work, travel andkids, and I wanted to slow life down a bit. So, I took one of my kidsfishing at a friend's farm pond. It was a beautiful day. While Iwas out there, I realized how much fun it was to fish again. Ireally enjoyed being in nature and being near water.
Now I try to fish every week - especially with my kids. I wantthem to have the memories of us fishing and having fun together. Asthey get older, I also hope they will remember how to slow life down a bit witha fishing rod.
I consider myself a newbie at freshwaterfishing. I hope to learn how to be agood angler from NVAAC and make a few fishing buddies.
