My son is 19 months old and he has an unhealthy obsession with fishing. Actually I’m the one with the unhealthy obsession with fishing, but my sons love of fishing is very odd considering he has never actually caught a fish. I mean he would if he could, but his little hands aren’t quite ready to work a fishing reel effectively.
Every time I’m working on making fishing lures, he is at my side. He cries when I put away my tackle box. Half of his vocabulary revolves around animals and fish. He knows hooks are sharp, but it never prevents him from wanting to play with them. Luckily he has never had a hook in his skin. Yesterday my wife found him stacking my lure paint jars on my desk. I think he really enjoys our fishing trips on Saturdays because it my one day off work and we always get to spend it together. Is it normal for a 19 month old old little kid to love fishing this much?

I’ve been working on new lures all week, getting prepared for my trip to Ontario. While the purpose of my trip is to visit family, I plan to sneak off to fish at least a couple of times. Luckily for me, pike season starts about midway though my visit, so I’ve built about 25 lures to take with me in hopes of catching some big ones. Here are a couple of the new paint jobs.
