Amanda and Abbey went fishing for the first time in Central Park, NY at the Harlem Meer today. They offer free fishing from April thru Oct. You supply your drivers license and they will supply you with a bamboo fishing pole and corn as bait. Amanda and I caught a fish within minutes of casting our line--beginners luck I guess. Amanda was so excited and proud! We caught two fish total for the day. The girls had so much fun fishing with their friends: Clare S., Emma, Claire G., Renee, and Amelia. Even Abbey took part in the action by posing for a photo holding the fishing rod! After we turned in our fishing poles the park attendant presented each little fisher with a Wildlife Investigator badge from the City of NY Park and Recreation Urban Park Rangers. What a great way to spend the day!
