I think I went once with my dad. We didn't use fishing poles. We each found a long stick and tied fishing line on one end. We tied a whatever-the-hook-thing-is-called at the end of the fishing line. I pulled out a plastic bag filled with water. Yeah.
Some kid in college said something once that impled that I had never gone camping. I showed objection, so hea asked if I ever had. My reply: "Uh... no."
