Photographer: Ray Wilkins


Where: Keg Lake, Ontario

When: August 2015

Details: Ray Wilkins was fishing for walleye with his two boys, then six-year-old Camden (left) and then four-year-old Cordell, in the family’s 1968 StarCraft when Cordell caught a small walleye. “This was Cordell’s first fish of the day and he wanted me to take a picture of it before releasing it,” Wilkins says. “As I snapped the picture, the fish jumped out of his hands and spooked him. Both boys are usually very good at handling their own catch, and want to release the fish by themselves.”
