“I have a lot of great memories, but I can’t imagine anything more exciting than the life I have now.” A actor Rob Lowe. Of all my memories now is the best of all, but looking back some things that really changed me as a kid was my annual trip to Canada. My great great grandfather found the lake a long time ago. From then on my family has been going there every summer . As I’ve grown older, going there changed me and every year I treasured it for a different reason. The first time that I can remember going to that lake was the year I caught my first fish. I had gone fishing quite a few times before, but never caught anything. This may have been due to the fact that i8 chose what a lure to use by how colorful it was and I thought fish would take the bait if I help it over the water. The day was like any other day me and my father were out by an old dead tree that had fallen in the water. The dead tree there for several years, and my dad said that he often caught bass there. I of course still not understanding the consept of fishing and the rules to follow, how to read the environment to know were the fish would likely be. When I was fishing I didn’t realize I had a fish on the line, until it was in the boat. It was HUGE! Well about an inch. Okay so it was just a baby minnow that I snagged as I was reeling in my line. It may not have been much but it meant a lot to me. I wanted to keep it because to me it was a very impressive catch. I set it outside so it could dry and I could keep it in a scrap book but a raccoon ate it and I lost my prize. However, that didn’t stop me from coming back next year and catching an even bigger fish.
