Gus goes fishing for the first time. Mommy can't help him because she doesn't fish, and Daddy is completely absorbed in his fancy new fishing gear. Fortunately, Grandpa is there. Grandpa shows Gus how to cast, but Gus gets all tangled up in the line. When he masters casting and lands the lure in the water, nothing bites. Finally he feels something - it gets away. "I want to catch a fish," Gus tells Grandpa. "Keep trying," says Grandpa. "We know they're out there."
As always, Grandpa gently points Gus in the right direction and Gus finds the way in yet another story, illustrated with watercolor paintings that "reflect the sunny warmth of loving connections passed across generations" ("Booklist")
