Free Summer Printable ~ Gone Fishin’

Yesterday was the first day of summer and for some people, summer means going fishing! When I was a kid my grandpa took me to Lake Shabbona to fish with a bamboo pole. So in honor of PawPaw, I made a “Gone Fishin'” free summer printable that you can download at the end of the post.

The fish print is in neutral colors so it can go with any decor.

My daughter had to work during the day but joined them later in the afternoon for other activities.

  1. Cute printable Jennifer! My son loves the fishing aspect of summer too! We go to a friend’s farm/garden that has 1 little ponds and he grabs the branch fishing pole, some worms, and catches blue gills like crazy! The record is 39 in 5 minutes haha! Last time I told him catch and release because those blue gill have hardly any meat on them… basically unless a big bass bites, he has to throw it back now. But it sure is fun for kids! Such fun memories this printable evokes!
