FISHING — It's no fish story that Spokane angler Tanner Grant, his fishing buddy Branden Carter and their boys had a great time Saturday for the fishing season opener at West Medical Lake.
They have this short broadcast-quality video to prove it.
Grant shot the footage in and out of the water with his Go-Pro camera and edited the clips to perfection. Add the perfect song and it's a first-class documentary on why many of us feel sorry for parents who've never taken their kids fishing.
P.S. Notice the boys eating in the background as they watch before applying the skills they've learned from observation and a peanut-butter high. A cooler with appropriate food is an essential item for successful kid fishing trips.

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.
