Small doesn't mean it's no fun!

While there have been a few posts recently discussing 'size' and whether it matters or not, I thought I'd jump on the size bandwagon. Small isn't always bad or less fun than full size, or normal size. It's all in what you do with it. Now, this isn't a fish story, but it is about a fish! A week ago we bought 24 bream and stocked the pond. I told my husband I wanted to fish and he laughed, said I would never catch one. Just to shut me up (I think) he put a very small hook on my line and off we went to the pond. Ha ha on him, small is just fine - I caught 4 of the bream and one sunny.

They do say that good things do come in small packages. I have to agree, it's all in what you say and how you say it. It sounds like the joke was on the hubby.

It sure was Ha He He....We really wanted to document the size to see how fast they grow. Since they can get to 2 feet long they should be a lot of fun to catch.

He didn't believe it - until I caught more than one Ha Ha to him! They are so small they can't pull the bobber under water so you really have to 'feel' if they are on the line.

I have missed the discussion. Glad you caught the fish however small. Surely if the writer has the skill to say much in acfew words small is as good as a tiny fish that causes you to catch four more.

Looks like my first one. It was a trout and looked so pathetic.
