Author Topic: A memory for a lifetime

I had the great pleasure of taking a friend and his 11 year old son out fishing this morning. the young fellow had never caught a trout ( I do not think his father has caught very many but I got him enthused enough to buy 2 flyrods and get a licence ). After almost 2 hours without a bite it was getting a bit boring. My "guiding" efforts were not looking good when suddenly my rod jerked hard. I was able to hand the rod to my young friend who did a masterful job, despite his excited father and "guide" in landing a nice trout just under 2 pounds. whereas he was anxious to get to shore minutes earlier he now wanted to go once more around the lake. I think another fisherman was born. Unfortunately that was the only fish. none of the other boats had anything to report except "you should have been here yesterday !" . I spent the next 2 hours at the boat launch with a flat tire and a spare that was rusted onto my truck ! oh well it was worth seeing the look on my young friends face when I netted his fish ! Great day for sure .

Great memory's. I also had the pleasure of taking a very young man, my grandson of 22 months, and my daughter out fishing recently. It was a bit slow but we did land three small rainbows. When we got home his Grandma asked him how many fish he had caught, up till then he was saying three, he replied "nine!". That's my grandson.

makes it all worth it.

goodtimes cagey. great story
