Looks like we have a budding fisher person here. How addicted is she going to be when she's about 18, or like me 58. pete

Be proud Papa, and while you're at it, give her a big hug. Take a few pictures of her working on her baits, of her fishing, and if she tries it, her first deer. Put them aside for those days ahead after she's grown up and moved out.
One of the pictures my little (28 yr old) girl love's is one of her and I after a fishing trip showing off the trout we caught. I always though it was funny how her fish "grew" over the course of the day.

Gotta be a proud PaPa after that. She's gonna give all the guys on TU a run for their money in a short time looking at those.

Those are SWEET. And they sure don't look like beginner airbrush techniques. Keep her on the path dad.

The younger kids are when they start something like painting, playing an insturment, learning simular skills, the less they over think the situation. Since they don't know they can't do something, normally they find a method of getting it done.
Growing up and getting smart is a real learning disability at times.

I can't paint that good, can I send some of my baits to her to paint? lol Great job. I know your a proud dad. I just love it when one of my girls wants to go do anything with me.
Make sure she is wearing some sort of respirator, you don't want to damage those young lungs.

I hope that the first bait I paint is half as good as those. She did a GREAT job. I have a 2 year old son and I can not wait until he gets older and starts to to the fishing and hunting thing.

Little girls always stay Daddy's little girls. Mine is a 25 yr old LPN on a cardiac med surg ward, and when she get's a chance, still loves to take off with Daddy and go fishing... Those are always great days.

That's great! My older kids go out with me now when they're visiting (probably afraid to miss the chance before I croak), but my soon-to-be 13 year old daughter, who used to go, says she hates fishing, and will never set foot on the boat again.
I guess I'll have to wait until she goes to college before she'll go out again.
