Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Today my father took me fishing for the first time on the bank of the Duero river and we had a wonderful day. I learnt how to handle the rod well and I also attached several hooks for the fish to bite. The best thing was when a giant trout appeared in the water and when it took the bait, I almost fell off the boat! As I did not have the strength to get it out of the water, my father helped me and he prevented me from ending up in the water.

I'll be right with you...
