Gone Fishing!

Our kids absolutely love an afternoon fishing, they bug their father constantly " let's go fishing Dad, come on let's go". Late yesterday afternoon we went and tried out a new fishing spot, this one is on the Namoi River right on the edge of Manilla at a friends place.
 Totally amazing spot to fish from, there were big rocks to sit on, the grass had even been cut for our arrival.
 In no time at all ( after Megan settled and stop making too much noise ) we had a bite.
 A huge Catfish!
 He was a bit slimy, Ryan had a hard time holding onto him!
 This is a face only a mother could love!
 Even though he was big enough and good enough to eat, we have a bit of a catch and release thing going on.
 Moments after the first one was released number two was on the line.
 After that things were kinda quiet, I think Megan was making too much noise, she clearly doesn't know the meaning of  "shhhh you'll scare the fish". Me, well after throwing in the line for the kids a few times and taking a few pictures it was time to sit back and relax with some hand stitching that I have to get done.
I hope you are all having a great weekend too!

Thanks for stopping by.

Love a good fishing adventure, our children dno't understand quiet either, or perhaps "throwing rocks upstream scares the trout". Oh that catfish, ug-lee!! Love Posie
