Such a peaceful day,’ Jack thought as he placed his chair beside the lake. The clouds must have let the sun have the spotlight for the whole day because nothing was ruining Jack’s bright attitude. Spruce trees surrounded the blue waters. The lake was huge, and many people weren’t fishing in it. Tweet, tweet! Migrating birds chirped. The smell of flowers covered his nose. Light wind blew against his face, making the afternoon really refreshing Jack attached his mealworm to his hook. In minutes of waiting for a fish to catch on his bait, something pulled on the rod. Jack jumped high and drew a smile on his face. “Finally, my first fish!” Jack exclaimed. 3, 2, 1, PULL! Nothing came. The fish didn’t want to be separated from the water yet. “Catching a fish is harder than i thought,” Jack admitted.
He placed another worm on his hook. 3, 2, 1! The hook was in the water again! Minutes of waiting for a fish, Jack felt a tug from the rod and immediately got his focus. He reeled in the heavy fish. The fish got lighter and lighter. Jack reeled it in when it was at its lightest weight. To his surprise, he lost another worm.
Jack was not going home until he caught a fish, so once again, he took his bait, and hooked it on the rod. The hook met the water again. Jack’s patience was very high at this point, he needed a fish to take home. Tug, tug, tug. Something was pulling on the bait! Jack reeled it in and admired his prize. The fish hung with it’s wide mouth stuck on the silver hook. A two pound salmon was in Jack’s possession!
Cooked fish was the only thing in Jack’s dinner menu. It’s soft meat mixed well with his stomach. Fishing was something Jack always wanted to do. He wished that the next time he went fishing, he would bring the knowledge that he learned today!
