Small fish leads to big catch on Life Care Center outing

FISHING -- Even small fish have the potential for big results.

Ask the residents at Life Care Center of Post Falls, Idaho, who enjoyed four fishing trips this summer to Falls Park.

On Sept. 5, the last trip of the season, Resident Jim Blake caught a few laughs from the four residents at the pond by catching a fish that was barely bigger than the hook at the end of his line.

He handed the fishing rod to activity director Terrie Robinson, who left the pole idle and the small fish dangling in the water just long enough to lure in a prize-size bass that engulfed the first fish and stayed on the line while Robinson reeled in the catch of the day.

One hook; two fish.

Big things start small.

“We were all laughing and couldn’t believe what just happened,” Robinson said. 

“It was a wonderful day,” said Blake. “It was a blast with Terrie catching the fish with about five minutes left!”
