- On Sunday, as the weather was very nice, my father and I decided to go fishing! I took my brand-new fishing rod and my father prepared the lures. When we arrived by the lake, he showed me how to how to put the bait on the hook. One must be very careful, because the hook is very sharp! But I managed on my first attempt, and I was able to throw my line really far. I was lucky: I went back home with three fish for dinner!
