When my sister was young, my father loved to try to teach her how to do different things. He always stuck to what he knew, because he didn’t want to give her the wrong information. Fishing was something he loved, so naturally he wanted her to love it as well. He’d wake her up early in the morning to take her fishing in his little boat.
When she was old enough, he taught her about the motor on his boat and how to keep it running smoothly. He taught her how to steer the boat with the motor and how to mix the 2 cycle oil with the gasoline in the correct ratio. Today, she doesn’t often go fishing and usually doesn’t work on boat motors, but at least she could if she needed to.
