i'm off work today and it's a gorgeous day here in h'town, so me and my youngest (age 5) decide to go to a pond nearby and see if we can have some fun w/ some bluegill. as we walk down to the pond holding hands, i can't help but remember the time that i was fortunate enough to do the same with my dad. we get into 'em good right away and catch some nice hand sized plus ones (my hand not hers) <!--graemlin::D-->. then she starts sqealing and so does the drag on her little ultralight reel. after a hard fought battle, she lands a sho'nuff good 'un - nearly a pound! after all the hollerin' and jumpin' up and down (me n her both) subsided, a strange, puzzled look came over her sweet little face as we carefully released her prize.
she looked up at me and said, "am i dreaming daddy? i sure hope not." isn't that what it's all about folks?
good fishin' to all of ya!
