Teaching a Boy to Fish

You know the old saying, “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day.  Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for the rest of his life.”

Well, my son Tripp hasn’t caught his first fish yet, but we’re trying our hardest to make sure he enjoys the Palin family tradition of fishing in the great state of Alaska!

    Can’t believe he is already up to his belt. Is he three feet now? If so, double it and he’ll be 6ft plus. Nice strapping boy. I don’t know about that smile though. He is gonna melt hearts everywhere!

    Hugs & Kisses!

    Enjoy every moment with your little man, Bristol. He is just scrumptious.

    Oh WOW! Hard to believe he is getting so big. I remember my days fishing with my dad on my grandpa’s pond. Such memorable days. I also use to fish with my late husband and we went out almost every day that we could, this is one sport I miss doing and miss doing it with him.

    Oh my gosh! He has gotten so big; he’s getting taller!

    I’m sure he’ll be telling stories about the BIG one that got away very soon! My daddy started taking me out on the boat before I could walk. He tells me the first fish I caught was bigger than me. I’m sure he actually did more of the catching part but I know I reeled in some line! ;-) And I’ve been fishing ever since. All kinds including this little halibut in your beautiful Alaska when we went out of Homer back in 2005. (click on the website link) Fishing is a great thing to bring families together. I’m sure you’ll post Tripp’s first whopper!

    Birthday number 74 is almost here and I still love fly fishing for trout in the streams and lakes in the high Sierra’s. Someday, I would love to fish in Alaska where the fish are much bigger. I’ll bet Tripp soon catches his first fish.

    When I was a young teen and moved here to Washington I had never seen the salmon running. After leaving school I walked home and took a short cut across a creek walked across a log looked down and saw more fish then I ever seen, flipped out and dove in to catch one. When I arrived home I was covered in mud and soaking wet in my new school cloths and my mother flipped out and said son have you done. I took her out side and said look here, we’re having fish for dinner.
    This is the honest truth not a fish story!
