  1. My Paw Paw is the one that got me in to fishing. He spent time showing me how and where to cast. The last time I talked to him was in the hospital while he was in a coma. I told him "you owe me one more fishing trip". This trip will have to be in heaven though.
    I miss him more then words can explain. But realize we aren't here forever and we have the "ability and the responsibility to pass it on".

    Thanks for sharing. This very thing has been rattling around in my head for a long time, but I am the grandpa riding the bell curve of age and all its problems. I CAN'T take my boat out anymore. The kids and grandkids are too busy. While I still can, I'm getting a new kayak because its something I can still handle…albeit, by myself. Gotta set the hook as long as God gives me time to do so!!

  3. For me & my Gramps, it was always IBC cream soda and sausage & crackers. To this day, drinking a cream soda just brings back fantastic memories of fishing with him. And although he's already "faded", he'll always be my hero.

    Thanks for reading guys. It's been a cathartic experience these last few days with these thoughts stirring in my head. Fishing is a special special bond.
