“My Fishing Adventure”
was created especially for
Garrett Cole Powers
at the age of 5
With Love From,
Mom and Dad
Garrett Cole Powers was peacefully reclining in his bed, browsing through his newest fishing catalog and thinking about the annual fishing contest on the Colorado River. “I sure wish I could enter,” Garrett said to himself as he flipped through the pages.
Garrett turned the page and saw Bobber Bear in the catalog. “Boy, I wish I could be a fishing bear like Bobber Bear. I would be able to fish anytime I wanted,” thought Garrett as he gently nodded off to sleep.
Garrett began to dream. In his dream, he was magically transformed into Bobber Bear. What was even more amazing was the fact that Dad was also transformed into another fishing bear.
Dad told Garrett to get his fishing rod because they were going to enter the fishing rodeo! Garrett was very excited as they began packing for their fishing trip. Along with sandwiches and fruit, they packed plenty of water to drink. Dad brought a tent.
They decided to go to the Bass Pro Shop to get sinkers, flies, hooks, floats and anything else they might need for the fishing contest. Dad also looked at the new boats, outdoor gear and other fishing equipment.
Garrett was fascinated by the colossal 30,000 gallon saltwater aquarium they found stocked full of trophy-size fish of many types. There was even a real person in the tank hand-feeding the fish!
At the fish camp, Garrett and Dad set up the tent for the night. With the boat in the water, they took their places and Dad started the motor! “Look out, fish, here we come!” yelled Garrett and Dad at the same time.
First they cruised up the river so Dad could find just the right spot. Garrett was starting to get impatient when Dad said, “This is the place!” Immediately, Garrett began looking for fish. He wished Paw Paw, Tevin, and Ty could be here with him.
Garrett watched Dad get one fishing pole ready. Next, Dad grabbed a spinner. Then Dad helped Garrett get his very own fishing rod ready. Garrett was going to try a plastic worm first.
Garrett had trouble throwing out his fishing line. Several times it caught nothing other than branches of some nearby trees. Finally, he learned how to cast his artificial bait to the right spot.
The first time Garrett reeled in his line slowly. He was very disappointed that the fish were not biting. After three more casts, Garrett began to understand that you do not catch fish every single time you throw out your line. Soon Garrett was catching quite a few fish, but none of them were big enough to win a trophy!
With the noon sun directly overhead, Dad reeled in the line, but Garrett left his line out and set his rod by his seat.
While he was eating lunch, Garrett heard a noise next to him. There was a quick jerk and his pole almost fell into the water. Garrett quickly grabbed the pole, but the fish that Garrett hooked was so-o-o big that it began pulling the boat!
The sandwiches flew overboard as Garrett, Dad, the boat, and the fish headed down the river through the rapids. Dad looked so funny trying to keep one hand on the boat and the other on his hat. Garrett would have chuckled if he had not been afraid of losing his fish.
As the boat raced toward the shore, the other fishing contestants could not get out of the way fast enough. Fishing poles were snapping and lines were breaking, as Paw Paw, Tevin, and Ty and his other friends were cheering from the banks. Garrett was ready to land the fish and try to win the trophy!
The fish was the biggest ever caught in the Colorado River. The loudspeaker hailed, “The winner of this year's fishing contest is Garrett Cole Powers.
“Garrett, Garrett! Wake up!” said Dad, while shaking Garrett out of his dream. “I just entered us in the big fishing contest. Let's go now or we will be late!” Garrett grinned from ear to ear. Maybe his dream would come true after all!
