This father and his two sons were about to embark on a freshwater fishing trip.
People should consult their local fish advisories before planning a fishing trip. Not to be missed is the fact that the boys would be learning how to fish, as well as a set of values, enabling them to appreciate how important it is to respect nature, and to be conscious of their impact upon the ecological balance of the environment.
He was discussing the route they would take with the older of his two boys, using a written guide to the Maryland waterways, while the younger boy was examining one of the fishing poles to be used on the trip. The three were going to use one of the canoes seen in the background. Along with wearing clothing appropriate for an outdoor canoe trip, which would protect them from the sun’s rays, insect bites, and scratches, to their exposed skin they applied sunscreen. Prior to arriving at the dock, the father investigated the possibility of there being any fish advisories pertinent to the region in which they’d be fishing.
