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!

    I hope Tripp’s first fish is a big one. Keep us posted with more pictures.

    Beautiful little boy! And what a gorgeous place for him to get to grow up in. :)

    Meanwhile his grandma knows, just like the rest of us do, there are even bigger fish to fry — including the whopper in the White House! This calls for a hungry barracuda!

    It’s SO true! Keep on teaching your miniature fisherman to fish, Bristol…

    What a charming picture. I so love fishing and Tripp will be over the moon when he catches his first fish. When I was little we made hand lines with 6 hooks or so on them and under supervision flung them out into the mouth of the river where it joined the ocean (I lived in the pacific islands). We caught a surprising amount of flounder and herrings and when you are so young it was so exciting. Good luck to you and your family and especially to Tripp.

    So sweet! My son and daughter-in-law are great ‘outdoors people’ and my 5-year-old grandson just got his first ‘big boy’ fishing pole (ie: NOT with Sponge Bob on it) and he’s thrilled! You’re a great mother and lucky to have such a close family.


    Love what MOM (SARAH) does to help our country …..
