Fishing rods
My dad took me fishing for the first time when I was 7 and I hated it. We would go fishing a few times every summer and till this day I continue to go fishing with him. Fishing is important to me because it is a way for me and him to connect, relax, clear our minds, and enjoy the beautiful weather on the water. It also taught me patience and with patience came rewards. That’s something I carried over into life outside of fishing. My very first time fishing with him I struggled with patience and I remember being frustrated because he caught all the fish. So he proceeded to teach me. The second time we went fishing I tried to be just like him: quiet, patient and relaxed. before I knew it, I had the biggest catch of the day.  I will never forget that feeling, and that's when I grew to love fishing.
