Teaching me how to put on the hook and bait,
He would cast it for me and then we'd wait

With three other kids he would go and help them too,
We would sit and watch for what bobbers do

Up and down the bobber would go,
We'd be so excited and let everyone know

Telling them we had a fish at the end of the line,
Reeling it in would take some time

Dad would want to help, but I'd say no,
This was a chance for all he had taught to show

Finally after what seemed like such a long while,
The fish hits land and I break into a smile

Mom says, "Hold up your fish!", and a picture she snaps,
This memory forever saved in a shutter and flash.

    Nicole; these fishing moments you will pass on to your children, I'm certain. The time will come when they too will say "No, I'll bring it in myself." The cycle has been passed on to a new generation. YarnSpinner

    Wonderful poem that deserved to win in the contest. This is more of a rhyme poem than free verse because its made up of rhyming couplets. They are all good.
