fishing and serenity

There is certainly something 
in angling 
that tends to produce a serenity of the mind.
Washington Irving

Instant peace and quiet? Well around here that means my children are absorbed in a good book, creating or fishing. My husband usually takes Ella and Roone fishing by himself, but I was on hand last week for the experience too. It's probably been two years since I've seen the children fish. They were both quiet as mice, laser sharp focused, casting and reeling like pros. What fun! Roone was the champion fisherman that day with three catches, all released on this excursion. We assumed he picked a hot spot since Jesse, Ella and I didn't get bite and were fishing nearby!
