    I spent this past weekend up in the coast range ~80 miles northwest of Portland with one of my closest friends and his kids. Cyrus (age 7) swaggers down to the lake and says '...I'm going to catch a monster Rainbow trout my first cast...'

    Then he did. No kidding.

    Took my 3 year old grandson(Xander) fishing for the 1st time last fall and he caught 3 and me(PaPa), well none of course. He had a blast.

    BTW...he's gonna be my drummer someday!

    My kids liked fishing as kids. Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks was an adventure. I think their favorite was off the pier in front of The Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. They caught what dared to come close to shore with bait they begged from the lab. Nothing they caught was much bigger than my hand. They threw those fish back but used finger size fish as bait for the bigger stuff they never caught... until one day. My youngest baited his hook and made his cast and immediately caught the big one. His mother. He hooked her through the ear. My oldest ran for the lab where I worked screaming about an emergency. Call 911. I reassured him that I t wasn’t that kind of emergency but we loaded everyone into the car and headed for the ER at Falmouth Hospital. They were back on the pier the next morning. Mom kept her distance.

    Stuff like that happened to me and my brothers growing up. For this trip, I spent the night before removing all of the treble hooks from all the lures that I took with me and replacing them with singles. Then I bent down the barbs on all of them.
