My only other experience with fish (excluding eating them) was a disastrous attempt at fishing in my childhood. A group of kids (in which I was included) decided to go fishing. We succeeded in finding a tangled pile of fishing poles and headed off to a backyard pond. I will spare the readers of this post the details of how disastrous our attempt at fishing was, but it ended when an adult found out what we were up to and put a stop to it. After that experience, I had no further interest in fishing ever again (and still don’t).
