2 Fathers and 2 Sons Riddle : Solution Explained

Riddle Details :

Two fathers and two sons went fishing one day. They were there the whole day and only caught 3 fish. One father said, that is enough for all of us, we will have one each. How can this be possible?
Solution :

The riddle can be conveniently solved by having the three people present each being of a different generation. Thus a grandfather, father, and grandson. The grandfather and father are both fathers and the father and his son are both sons. There is nothing in the riddle to suggest that one of the men cannot be both a father and a son.

Thus the solution is the father, his son, and his son's son. This equals 2 fathers and 2 sons for a total of 3.
