Hi All,

As alot of you knew and for those who didn't i had my first child on April the 8th 2012 @ 1213 am, hence why i have been a bit quiet on the forums latley.

Kayden Brenton Phillip Bates is his name

Weighing in @ 3.9kg and Measuring 52cm - He is definatly a keeper.

I'm pretty excited about taking & teaching him all about fishing and hunting so when i get old and grey he can take me in return. :lol:

It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.

Give a man a fish, and he can eat for a day. But teach a man how to fish, and he'll be dead of mercury poisoning inside of three years.

“Fishing, with me, has always been an excuse to drink in the daytime”

"Soon after I embraced the sport of angling I became convinced that I should never be able to enjoy it if I had to rely on the cooperation of the fish."

Congratulation on such a fine child!
:applause: :mrgreen:

But really, do you think that it is safe to expose him to Tales from the tiny so early?
:wink: :lol:

Have a good day, (and some good nights if you can)

Hello Kayden, welcome mate.

Congrats JQ, what a beautiful little boy.

The gods do not deduct from man's allotted span the hours spent in fishing. ~Babylonian Proverb

Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~Patrick F. McManus

Well done JQ..Future fisho for sure. :clap: :clap:

" YOUTH is a GIFT "
"AGE is an ART "
"Doesn't mean you get any smarter..just wrinkled and cracked".

"No angler watches nature in a passive way...He enters into its very existence." (John Bailey...Reflections on a Waters Edge)

"Govern a Family as you would catch a small fish....Very Gently." (Chinese Proverb)

"Only those become weary of angling who bring nothing to it but the idea of catching fish." (Rafael Sabatini...1857-1950)

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.
