Some parents spend their weekends playing catch with their kids, or bonding over an enormous stack of homemade pancakes. Tom Nardone and his 11-year-old son Mark have a slightly different hobby. For the past few weeks, the pair have been cruising the Detroit River for crusty cans and mangled plastic. It’s an activity they call “trash fishing,” and they’re hoping it catches on in their community.

“We’ve tried fishing, but honestly it’s kind of tough for a kid to sit there waiting, it’s a little boring,” Tom told The Detroit Metro Times. Trash fishing, however, proved to be more engaging.
