Whenever I go fishing with my family my two younger brothers always get bored. They get angry about the abscence of fish, and are not patient (which is to be expected at that young of an age.) What we do is we send them searching for abandoned lures and other goodies. We always find stuff, and sometimes we will find a complete line with bobber, weights, and a lure. Over the years I have collected many things. The things shown are what my siblings and I found in less that two hours at Jefferson Lake in Colorado. (Im not sure why anyone would use such a large lure where we where, the largest fish we caught was a 6 inch Rainbow Trout.) So if your children become restless, you can simply let them roam and find fishing supplies.
