Giving


This Christmas I gave Papa John, my father-in-law, his first fly rod outfit. A few months back we went fishing together for the first time down the Bear River directly behind his property. After the great day of fishing and showing him the basics in casting, Papa John, was intrigued by the idea of fishing with the fly. I knew that this would be my gift to him for Christmas. What a great way to share the passion my father gave to me. It was great to watch Papa John open his gift while I remember opening my first fly rod at the age of twelve. Looking forward to fishing more with him.

Awww. This makes me happy. I'm glad you and my dad can hang out and fish together.

I love the beanie Dad is wearing. :)
