After many years of residing in Oregon, my parents came out for a visit. I was anxious to discuss some of my favorite fishing spots with Dad. A couple years previously he had a hip replacement so he wasn't as mobile as he when was. I chose a small stream that twisted via a cow pasture; it really did not have cows any more just several of the residues of a livestocks operation that had actually long been deserted.
Yet everything that I'll accomplish in fishing and in life is a direct outcome of those early journeys. Those trips were much more than apprehending fish. They were a way to link and also a spring board to discuss life.
