As work and other concerns try to take over my life, I've been making an effort to spend more time with my 14 year old son. Yesterday morning we managed a short but thoroughly enjoyable ride along the river.
With temperatures hitting 100F/ 37.7 C, we sought out some shade for a short break.
We shared the shade with a small herd of cows. They paid us no attention.
I'm trying to come up with new yet relatively inexpensive activities that me and my son could do together. I thought it might be interesting to try fishing the Trinity. It would be great if we could ride our bikes to the river, do a little fishing and then ride back home. I've fished maybe four or five times in my entire life so I am completely clueless. I've done some research. A fishing license is $30 and it's good for a year. A kid under the age of 17 doesn't need one. I've seen some telescoping rod/ reel combos that would work for us and they're affordable. I'm not looking to eat anything I catch, it would be strictly catch and release. If anybody has any recommendations as far as quality packable fishing gear, or websites with good beginner info please let me know.
