Last time I was home we took my little Niece Ava fishing on the boat for the first time. She was only 2 years old and it was all a bit much for her to take in. I realized that my passion for fishing and where it all started was right at the basics. Catching bait, digging worms from the bucket and all the small things I loved as a kid before even catching a fish. Yesterday we took Ava out where it all started for me at Cooby Dam, Ava had an absolute blast. Loading the bait tap and checking it ever 5 minutes, digging worms out and waiting for a bite, and getting a surprise when something had taken her bait. With all the advancements we have in fishing sometimes we have to start as the basics with kids so they can enjoy the little things first.
