Our Papa was a quiet, gentle man. Served as an airplane mechanic in the second war. Never saw any action. We’re grateful for that.
As kids, the four of us would spend a lot of weekends and summer vacation time at Nana and Papa’s sprawling house on main street in Boyle (where the ATB bank is now). Our grandparents always knew how to keep us busy. Whether it was helping weed the huge Ukrainian garden, running grocery errands to the Co-op or teaching us to count in our heads playing crib (15 two, 15 four, 15 six).
Four kids under the age of ten can get underfoot sometimes but Nana knew what to do. “John” she’d say, “why don’t you take the kids fishing?” Papa never said no to fishing.
Papa wasn’t demanding but in his own quiet and gentle way he made sure that every one of his 11 grandkids learned to fish. Summer and winter. No exceptions.
He had this old tin can of a Sears fishing boat with a Johnson outboard. We’d help load it onto his green 1968 International Travelall. Back to the garage for tackle boxes, rods, reels, life jackets. Nana had sandwiches, cookies and drinks packed for us. We’d head out to Skelton or Buck lake for a day of fishing.
Fishermen find peace and relaxation on the water. Papa taught us how to tie our hooks and bait them with worms or small pieces of cheese. How to measure depth, cast out and slowly reel it in.
He’d tell us fish stories and tall tales and we’d return home much calmer, full of fresh air, the day’s bounty handed over to Nana for dinner.
This 2020 Lund Angler comes with four fishing seats a live well and a 50 hp Mercury four-stroke.
It’s a bit too snazzy for our Papa. Starts every time. Doesn’t need to be tinkered with to fulfill the mission. But new Papas are born every day. And there’s a lake near you that needs to be discovered. Taking grandkids fishing is the birth rite of every new grandfather. It isn’t my Papa’s boat. But it could be yours.
Don’t forget the sandwiches and cookies. That’s key.
