Honourable mentions from the 9th annual Outdoor Canada photo contest

Photographer’s description: My three sons Jack, Brooks and Ty have become quite the avid fisherman. It’s all they wanted to do this summer. This made their Grandpa very happy, as he is always looking for a good excuse to go fishing. The evening that this photo was taken, we weren’t having the best of luck catching, but the boys did not want to go in until they caught a fish. It was getting dark, and way past their bedtime, but they were determined to catch a fish. Finally, my son Brooks landed this big walleye, and you couldn’t wipe the smile off his face! As he held it up, he kept saying, ‘It’s so heavy!’ They all ended up catching one walleye each, so it turned out to be the perfect evening of fishing with Grandpa!
