(The fading art of handing down skills from grandparent to child!)

It used to be that many a child would go to their grandparents when they were old enough to walk to get a basic understanding of what life is all about! That included fishing, hunting, trapping, and how to operate a boat. These children were perfectly capable of handling the boat and going fishing by the time they were twelve years old.
