Proud to pass on love of fishing (and catching)

It seems just like yesterday that I was staring down at this new human being that I had been a part of creating. He was swaddled in a blanket as we welcomed him into the world.  Now he is three and he can walk, talk, and do just about anything you throw at him.

Growing up with a father that was passionate about the outdoors I knew that I would eventually pass that along to any children that I was to have. This was not just a dream, but it has become a reality. When spring arrived this year, I bought my little man his first fishing pole and we spent hours in the back yard practicing his casting abilities — very much like I did when I was a youngster.

Too many people get caught up in the everyday hustle and bustle of the world and don't take time to enjoy what is around us. I made sure that growing up my son would be exposed to the outdoors in many ways and at the same time not be forced into anything that he would not enjoy. Much to my enjoyment, he shares the love of fishing with me and I have a new fishing partner for life.

I don't know who was giggling louder when he reeled in his first fish, me or him, but all I can say, it certainly was a very proud moment in my life.
