I got a fish.

Well the blogs have been dead for a while. With the death of my sister obviously things have been a bit depressed around here. There have been good times, but then we come back down. Last weekend was what I needed. My Dad took me fishing. OK, well he took the whole family, but it was for my benefit. It's been a very long time since I have been fishing. and about the same amount of time since I have been able to go with my Dad.
When I was younger I didn't have the patience for it. I asked my Dad to teach me again. He took us up to the Uinta mountains. Well, That really didn't work out. The lakes still had ice on them, and snow. That meant no fishing there. It was a great car ride though. Anyway we ended up going to Echo lake and fished. Everyone had a good time. I had a great time. I was the only on who caught a fish. My dad cast the line to show me how. The line was in just long enough for me to get the poll, and sit down on a rock when I felt the tug on the pole. I reeled her in. Dad didn't know I had anything until It was almost to the land. It was a 21 & 1/2 in. rainbow trout.It was a great time had by all.

I'm glad you got out with your family, sounds like fun! What a well deserved, fun family day.

Also, what a big fish you caught! That's cool that your dad was teaching you to fish and you're the only one that caught one!

who need patients to fish if you catch a fish on your first cast? That is the kind of fishing I like...we'll that and the tasty beverages.
