Young Friðrik Örn Sigþórsson goes on a fishing adventure in the beautiful Icelandic fishing village of Stykkishólmur.
First Friðrik goes cod fishing with his maternal grandfather, Friðrik Jónsson. Then he goes lumpfish fishing with his father, Sigþór "Siggi" Hallfreðsson, and paternal grandfather, Hallfreður "Haddi" Lárusson, all to learn about and participate in the traditional and cultural heritage of fishing in Iceland.
And as his mother always says, "Don't forget your hat."
Going Fishing has been selected as a NCSS-CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Book for 2006.
