Another trip that went away due to Covid returned in the form of this fishing trip to the Fraser Valley Fish Hatchery. On this trip students learnt about fish identification, setting up a rod and lure, casting, safe fish handling and sustainability practices. They then descended on the trout ponds at the hatchery and put their angling skills to the test. While some were more successful than others-Atticus is a beast but perhaps also a cheater (not my words) :)-true to Mr. Rahe’s guarantee everyone came away with a catch. Highlights included the numerous first time anglers getting exposure to this addicting sport, and Ella Bohn finding out that she must have fisherman DNA as the fish wouldn’t stop attacking her bait. While Daven “no sleeves” Pemble scared the fish away with his intimidating biceps, even he and Mr. Rahe weren’t shut out of the action. At the end of the trip students were treated to a fish cleaning demonstration so they know how to process the future fish they catch for eating, and lucky Crystal Rinke was allowed to bring the cleaned fish home for dinner. Overall, a good weather day in the midst of an otherwise dreary week and a memorable trip for all those who attended!
