It's starting to melt out. I have a license from last year and hope to take the kids out.

We have regular rods and reels like this one, http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shop-Stampede-Spinning-Rod-and-Reel-Combos-Front-Drag/product/95707/-1094936
Plano takle box, http://www.basspro.com/Plano-1354-4By-Rack-Tackle-System/product/58121/-1457466

And some hooks and lures. We will fish local lakes and rivers when it warms up.

A very nice rod, a little less crude than you're probably used to

The kids have newer rods because we just bought them last year but I have an old beat up one. I have never caught a fish. When I was younger I did not enjoy it, no patience.

Last year I was teaching our daughter how to cast and we had fun with that but didn't spend enough time to get to where we used any hooks. The spot we selected on the river was not very good. Too much brush and it was pretty rapid. As it was the first time it was fine for practicing and learning how her reel worked.

My brother used to like to fish now he keeps a couple of aquariums. I have been looking at salt water aquariums but they seem like a lot of work as the water gets dirty fairly quickly. Hopefully we can go with him and his daughters.

One of my cousins was the best angler I've known personally. He nearly allways caught fish even if no one else was, in the same places he was using. I have no idea why other than he seemed persistant. He must have known things I have no idea about. I can't ask him as he died of liver complications from drinking at 36.

I bought a package of 25 #4 barbless hooks. Just over $10. Confused

I'm excited for the season if it ever warms up enough. I can't buy a license because the RELM network is down.

Edit: got a license but it's snowing.
