My father used to take me fishing in his old little boat called "Angelita." Many times he reminds me of the day I caught my first fish at the age of 4 and with his help, a "Pallete" (Seabream) weighing about 400 grams. Today, at 51 years old, I still go fishing in the same waters where I first learned how to cast a line, the waters I've known all my life.
