Gone fishing

As a family, we are here at Bill's Fishin' Hole so that the two oldest (one is a Star Scout, the other a Cub Scout) could complete requirement #9 for the Fishing Merit Badge for Boy Scouts and the Wolf Elective #19 on fishing respectively.

We got here a little under an hour before closing time.  We are the only visitors...unless you count the chickens, peacocks, ducks, rabbits, and other animals roaming around.

The three different sizes of Rainbow Trout are separated in three ponds.  We choose the largest pond that contains the smallish fish.  The two boys and I all caught one trout each.

Due to the ponds being stocked, getting a fish to strike and keeping it on the hook is fairly simple.
