ANGLING — We pause current events for this Landers family fishing flashback….

I just stumbled onto this 1998 photo (above), which brings back fond memories of fishing Badger Lake with my favorite youngest daughter Hillary, and her pal, Emma Scherer.

They were elementary school classmates at the time, but underneath those cute, innocent exteriors they were fish-hooking maniacs.

Advice to parents: Don't miss out on the fun of taking kids fishing.
