Fishing From The Banks

 
 


Fishing from the banks of Kentucky Lake and the Tennessee River is a common practice around here.  It doesn't require any special equipment  - just a fishing pole and a lure or some bait.  It can be very relaxing ~ or exciting!

This photo was taken on the Saturday of the Sealy Outdoor / McDonald Big Bass Splash.  I was standing on one of the piers and called across the water, "Are you catching anything?" and the young man told me he was trying to catch "monster" fish.  I hope he did.

We have miles and miles of banks from which you can fish.  Come play with us!

How long do you think they'll remember this vacation??


Probably forever.

We have something for everyone, all ages, every generation.


Even your dog.

Come play with us at Paris Landing and make a few memories of your own.

Playin' In The Water

Sometimes we get so busy talking about fishing, hunting and playing golf that we overlook one of the major activities in our neighborhood.  That would be ....

- just playing in the water!




One more.


Thanks to Richard Graves and his family for the great photos.  You can visit Richard's website here.
