The first time I ever went fishing, it was with my dad. We went out to a lake about two hours away to fish from the shore. I was 14, and, enjoyed simply playing in the water. I just knew the basics, and wasn’t sure how to fish. Not soon after I cast my line for the first time, I noticed that the float sank, and I knew that a fish had taken the bait.
"Dad! A fish!" I screamed. I tried pulling the line, but couldn’t get it to come. Following my father’s instructions, I reeled as hard as I could, and after a few minutes of struggling, I could see the fish jumping in the water just beyond my feet. But I couldn’t seem to pull it up! He told me to simply hold the fishing line steady.
Then, he jumped into the lake. I wasn’t expecting that. He grabbed a net and plucked the fish right out of the water. It was a four-pound largemouth bass. I felt like gone through a war, without the teamwork between me and my dad, there was no way I would be able to catch that fish. This is one of the story me and dad accomplished together but it was the most adventure one. Ever since then, my dad became my hero and someone I always look up to. I go to my dad whenever I needed help or advice. I would have loved to share more story of me and my dad with all of my friends on my QR Living page.
