Toy

Now a post for 'toy'. It is wonderful to see, in this age of electronic toys and gadgetry, that boys can still have hours of fun with something as simple as a tiddler net and a bucket. (Granddad was sitting on a seat nearby taking care of the bucket containing the 'catch'.)

I remember doing exactly the same thing, in the same place a very long time ago - and then introducing my daughter to the same form of amusement. Both D & J were fascinated by the idea of fishing for tiddlers in the lake - and it kept them busy for over 2 hours until they had to throw the tiddlers back as it was time to go home!

wow, this brings back memories for me too. I used to do this in England all the time and try and catch tadpoles. Happy times :)
They had a brilliant time - they were catching tiddlers - tiny, tiny fish.
Do they use tiddlers for bait, or is it simply a catch and release exercise each time?
It's just a catch and release exercise every time - there isn't anything much bigger in the lake - it is fed with sea water as the shore is only a couple of hundred yards away.
