This week, for the first time ever, I spent my Monday at Community Boating Inc. in Boston, and what an experience it was. I spent the day at work teaching kids how to fish on one of the docks along the Charles river, and that's not something people can say they do often. Something else really cool that I learned how to do was how to tie a trilene fisherman's knot, which doesn't seem as complicated to do once you get the hang of it, it's a lot more simple than I had realized.

This Friday I spent my day the Courageous sailing center in Charlestown. Here my team and I did a mix of both fishing off the pier and fish printing with the campers enrolled at the center. Fish printing is where we use both a live, and dead fish for those less comfortable with touching real fish, and use different colored inks to color them before pressing a piece of rice paper to the fish so the colors can stick to the paper and viola! You have a freshly made fish print. Come by and try it some time!
