HI. I HAVE TAKEN MY GRANDCHILDREN FISHING. THE ELDEST WHO IS 16 AND THE YOUNGEST WHO IS 7. AND GUESS WHAT THE YOUNGEST IS A GIRL AND LOVES EATING THEM TOO.

BHARAT, THE ELDEST HAS CAUGHT HIS FIRST A 2KG. AT THE AGE OF FIVE. THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE UP BEFORE FIRST LIGHT AND RARING TO GO.

ITS CRAZY, I KNOW BUT OWEN DOESNOT LIKE KIDS ON FISHING TRIPS AS THEY ARE IMPATIENT AND NOISY. :? :wink:

TWO OF THE BOYS ARE ALSO INTO AEROMODELLING.

Dude between you and your grandkids you frighten every fish for miles.
I was fishing at one end of Forbes sagar and could hear you screaming at your grandson about a mile down the lake.
Fishing is meant to be a relaxing sport, not to build up BP.
Your grandson insisted on doing everything he was told not to do, like casting over another persons line every 30 seconds.
Now tell me who would want that, especially when you get a chance to fish for a day once in a bluemoon.

Two of the rookies (not the grandkid), had 1 small mashseer each at the head works at forbes sagar.

There is nothing more exhilarating than when one's children want to follow Mother AND Father in( with) the Line and other Outdoor Sport.! I was obssessed with Fishing and other Outdoor Sport from the time I was 5. I am very proud of my kids all four of them Alexis, Sacha, Marcus and Ciara who followed in our footsteps whether Fishing or any Outdoor Sport. No one needs to force children.It is IN BUILT, in a Family when everyone has the same passion, and as an Older Woman Angler, of the Waters( not the Sea), I am firm about the fact that there is nothing more enjoyable than Fishing and other Outdoor Sport with my Children and cruising the Outdoors.Roughing it out is Our Style. No Trimmings and Fancy Stuff. Down to Earth. I am amused when people talk about Fishing Resorts etc. In our days we just went Out Fishing etc.No Licences, no Protected Waters.Upper Bhavani, Sangam wherever..............We started young with Bamboo Rods and Bamboo Cane with Bait inside in lakes overnight to catch Murrel at night.Then we progressed. Fishing is all a matter of Luck sometimes Not just Expertise. Marcus Campos has worded it accurately.I have seen for myself a friend Land a Massive Mahseer on a Light Rod borrowed from a serious Fisherman who had stayed at Galibori for Two Weeks without catching anything.

"Marcus", the name rings a bell!
I remember meeting him and his buddies from Hyderabad at Hiara. Heres what his buddies had to say.
"We drive down here from Hyderabad to unwind but Marcus comes here to get wound up".
Hi Marcus Tight lines if you are reading this.

I agree with Owen on children and noise and disapprove of noisy kids while Fishing.But they can be taught at an early age, that it is to relax not get everybody's BP up and lines crossed.Children reared in Families that hunt/fish learn the rules of the Game early in life.Mind you my youngest son Marcus(NOT CAUVERY COWBOY) jabbered constantly while fishing when he was very young and was ordered to shut. Now at Eleven he is so intent on angling that he doesn't like others interfering with his concentration.
That was agood one one the Chappalingam Gavin.

Kids Fishing, I do it often, more than the noise (speach) it is movment and them throwing shadows. When I take the kids out except my eldest son I resign to the fact that I am just a gillie that day. My job is to take out tangles, get the water and food, change lures etc.

It is fun if you approach it from that angle and just accept the fact that that is what you are going to be doing that day. However, the "smiles" when they get one are worth all that running around.

I love taking my niece out fishing. She's all of 9 years but has an infinite love for nature and for fishing..
She has been taught about the requirements of this sport. The patience and the stealth that is required and over time she has become a real pleasure to have around while fishing...

However, there are anglers who bring their kids around and who have no control over them or rather wish not to have control over them and let them do as they please.. This results in other anglers getting pissed off..

I think its more upto the anglers to teach the children about fishing and the decorum that is to be maintained.. It's upto us to teach them and not hope, that they will learn on their own !!

Totally Agree with you Gavin, from a Lady Angler, fishing/hunting from her childhood and who brought up her kids Fishing/Hunting. Sometimes worse than Noise, are lousy Losers and those who blame everything on something else as in "Fishermans Tales" !!!!!!!!!!

Here are some pix of my daugter. she's just turned four. These were taken at Ramganga. She was fishing in a small pool full of what we were told were snow trout. She caught one on atta. And insisted we put it right back. I guess Catch and Release comes naturally to kids.

I took my grandson Bharat fishing at the age of four. He caught his 1st at the age of five a huge telapia. He has got his own rod and reel. I have ordered four more from Owen for the rest but I require the reels. All the five are fond of fishing. Owen, Pranav caught a black mahaseer, 7/8 pounder, last week on a school trip, on a stick and hook, at bhimeshwari. Took the help of the gillie to bring it in. When I am with the kids , its put on bait, help them cast, ask them not to fidget, water- soft drinks-snacks bearer. [smilie=happydance.gif]

Just the Girls having fun...they bought matching outfits and decided to have a photoshoot..

Now that you have seen my Gaffing crew and the Gaff, you know I have got to behave. To add, it is a Flying Gaff, so though I think I can get away...

By the way Niel, the girls are Twins! But so different, one's left handed and the other right handed..

Hi,
Me and my brother are twins. 5 minutes apart. He is right handed and I am a lefty. We look similar but has different likes and dislikes. I love angling while he hates. He loves parties while I love to be at home taking a drink and fiddle with my angling gears. He is totally up to date with fashion while I can put on a shirt without ironing also.

Cheers,
Apoo

Apoo!

I know what you mean. I have twin younger bros. I married a twin and twins run in her family. This is what I have had to live with.

1. Have a few drinks and you see four.
2. Go for an ultrasound and you are asking "how many"
3. don't wear your glasses and you could be nursing a bruised rib.

and

4. say one is cuter than the other and you are dead

cheers to the both of you

Thanks for the insight guys!
With a gaff waving Momma like that, and the sole monopoly on tv/remote/dvd/wallet and I think the car in about 15 years-time does zip by, I know! Know who to call if I need help :(
I better start brainwashing the family to fishing completely! wot the 'ell, might as well lose the rods and tackle box too ;)
best to the families, all you guys out there, especially the 'twinners'
Daughters Rule, OK!

Looking At all the pictures and stories i honestly think that each one of you are just not great ANGLERS but excellent fathers who share the time,patience and finance for the kids(Fred u still have u car).Hoping to take my girls on real fishing trip presently they just used to our dobbie grabbing the rope at the end of the line and the drag screaming as he runs down the garden gleefully.They quite proficent in knots and tied our neighbours sons legs together with a constrictor knot which just jammed as they are meant to do so,the poor kid was terrified when i get my big gerber out to free the guy.....ha ha..........Sure girls rule.

My daughter, she is nine, has caught the fishing bug too. She hooked a Mirgal of about 2kg, fought it for 5 minuts and then lost it after bringing it on the surface. Since then she is dreaming fish.
