I’ve been standing there for a while and I’m starting to get bored. Mum comes over and I tell her “I haven't caught anything yet”. She tells me to ”go get some bait” because I was using a fishing rod one that you don’t need bait on but you can put some on if you want. So I went and got some bait off the bait lady after she had done that and then I went over to another spot and in about two minutes I was getting a big tug and then my line started moving around in a figure eight pattern so I quickly wound it back in and wala, a fish magically appeared on my line, it was pretty big. I called Brendon over to take it off, he let me go put it in the bucket. When I was taking it back the scales were falling off on me. The fish was very restless and was jumping and squirming around so I chucked it in the bucket.
After that It took a while for me to catch another one so I sat down then Greta said I had a wasp on my hair and I froze as Pam flicked it off. After that I moved down a bit and the wasp just happened to come back again and land on my arm and then flew away and went down to some other people.
Then I asked mum if she could go get some berly to attractthe fish. When she came back she chucked it in and then my fishing line was famous.
There were thousands of fish scrabbling around having
little nibbles at the bait.
Then I felt a tug and I had another fish on my line.
I wound it back in then took it off and put it in the bucket.
Later on, it was taking a while to get anything I kept putting berly in but they were just nibbling and then going away. So I moved to another spot and still nothing.Then I asked my if I could chuck it in not just drop it I had one go then my told me not to do it again because I was a bit dodgy throwing it, so I just stuck to dropping it in.I moved over along into the middle where you could see lots of fish it wasn't long before I had a fish it was the biggest one yet. I held it up with pride as Brendon gave it to me and then he dropped it as he took the hook out of him then I went over and had a photo with the fish. Not long after that we went home to go make our bivouacs and cook our dinner.
Thank you for helping my camp group at Camp Roil. It was great that you came on camp with us. My favourite bit was when we went fishing. The camp was cool.
It was awesome how you rode the bikes to the house with my mum instead of just walking them back, then wanted a rematch because you lost. You guys looked funny with your kumus stuck up in the air.
I liked your ideas that you thought of in the amazing race and you were really encouraging and how you gave us small tips that really helped like when you told us to keep our arms straight and to tell us how to hold the kayak.
This book is set a poppa’s house.The book is about when a family comes together and has a meeting because their poppa is coming up to be seventy. They want to thank him for giving all of them veggies from his garden and fixing things. All of the families put fifty dollars in to buy him a decent present but now they don’t know what to get him. So they do a raffle and Sam gets to pick but he doesn't know what to buy him.
A strength in the book was how he didn’t tell us what the present was until poppa unwrapped it and I really wanted to find out what it was. I weakness in the book was when he unwrapped his present and he was a bit like he didn’t like it.
I think that the book is interesting. In a part of the book I have felt the same way once. It was when Sam had to get a good present and like the pressure was all on him.
