I have to ask because my 12 year old went fishing this summer with her Grandfather and loved it. I have not been fishing in years and always remember doing it in the summer. She wants to go again. I have no idea though if one can go fishing in the fall though. Wouldn’t it be cold to be sitting out on the water like that?
My dad says she can go fishing in the fall down here but says she should get a fishing license as she will be 13 in a week and he reminded me to get everyone that goes out on a boat a good life vest. He said even with good swimmers if a boat flips you can get knocked in the head and a vest could save you or if you hit very cold water you might panic and not even remember how to swim. Hard for me to picture not remembering how to swim. If the boat flipped I think after making sure all the kids are fine I would be freaking out over the possibility of swimming with the worms that had been in the boat as bate. Ewww! No, I don’t like worms! Yes, I am all girly about it too!
I am reminded that it is about that time of year to get a good sporting jacket that is water proof anyway. For the kids I think fleece jackets will work well enough till winter though! Not water proof but water resistant at least! Plus, I love fleece though it is a sorry thing to admit when one wants to be more eco-friendly as fleece is not a natural fiber but rather a kind of plastic as it turns out!
I think we are going to try to go fishing this fall!
