Embarking on a challenge and developing a new skill is one of the joys of childhood. Watching a child discover an appreciation for a new activity is a gift to bear witness to. Teaching a child the joys of fishing teaches a child lessons in patience and respect for our majestic outdoors.
Fishing in Saskatchewan attracts new participants to this popular prairie pastime every year. Summer in Saskatchewan presents no shortage of outdoor play. With 100,000 lakes as a playground, the summer beckons us to the water. At Buffalo Pound, the sun begins to set. The myriad of colours dances off the stillness of the water, like coloured glass.
The heat of the day cools and beckons the young fisherman to the dock. Line cast, the tranquility of the water is briefly interrupted. Patiently waiting, the moment arrives. The rod gripped in his small hands, holding on tightly to not lose his first bite.
