A boy's first fish: hooked on the moment

FISHING — I feel sorry for parents who don't take their kids fishing. They don't know what they're missing.

See a few hints about what they're missing in my Sunday story about Saturday's opening day of Washington's lowland trout season

Please enjoy this short photo sequence of Quinn Connacher, 6, of Spokane, as he works at Williams Lake to catch his first fish.

Once the trout was netted, the boy got a huge high five before he pranced and danced in celebration on the Bunker's Resort dock.

To heck with the five-fish limit.  As soon as his stepfather gathered their minimal gear, the boy made a beeline  up to the campground to show off his prize. 

The rainbow may have grown a little larger by the time he finished telling the story.
