Fishing without a Tackle Box

Before the First Cast

Before the First Cast

We woke up early to go fishing down by Mahoney State Park. We were all excited, until we realized we forgot the tackle box.

So what do you do with no tackle box, you decided to fish anyway with the two lures you have on. What are the chances that they would both get stuck and lines broken on their first cast…well in our family apparently very likely. So Payton and Addy each made one cast and then we had to figure out what to do with the rest of our morning. After all we did come all this way!

We we decided to explore a little bit of Mahoney and then head over to the Wildlife Safari Park.

At the Wildlife Park we enjoyed seeing elk and going on a fun walk up the wolf canyon. It was a little muddy and the trail was rather steep, but we made it out not too terribly covered in mud. So even though the day started out bleak, rainy and without a tackle box, we ended up having a good family adventure.DSCN3636 DSCN3634
