Beau & Grandpa Fishing

Today I had the privilege of taking my grandson fishing for the first time.
We headed out with the intention of going to Cabelas to get bait, go to Mc Donalds for lunch, and then to the pond to fish. We got to Cabelas, looked around, found our bait, and left. Once in the truck Beau says "I want to go fishing and then go eat". Okay, it's his day so we'll go with that. We get to the pond, bait his hook, I cast it out and within 3 or 4 minutes its "fish on!!!".

Then we moved around the pond and caught several more.

It was a really fun day. At one point he said "you are a really good grandpa" to me. Yes, I choked back a tear!!!

Latest stuff...

Today I fished Loy Lake with Greg. It was a windy nightmare and my first skunking at Loy. My main objective was to try out the new yak with the fish finder and anchor trolley installed. They worked perfectly.

Yesterday we went to Tish to the Blue River Trout Derby to talk fly fishing. We met lots of folks and had a great time.

We met a guy named Ted Meador who caught the biggest trout on Sunday weighing in at over 10 pounds.

Last Saturday we had a fishing get-together at Pickens Lake with Mariner Sails.

Patty and I went to Tish a few weeks ago and camped on Pennington Creek. It is a beautiful park and the fishing is great there on the creek.
