Default Takin' the Old Man to a New Stream

Well my Father's Day present was taking my Dad to a stream he hasn't ever hit. It holds loads of fish and some big ones. But with his pending hernia surgery we didn't have much time before he was in extreme discomfort. We lost loads of fish and missed loads, only 6 came to hand a couple of them being goobs. He was set on catching some fish on a hopper.


Hoppers my dad tied up before the outing

Great photos. Glad you could spend the day with your Dad, it's great you guys have something to connect to.

I have to ask, what is the beer in that first pic, with the Hunter Thompson quote?

The beer is Flying Dog Brewery's Tire Bite. The quote is "good people drink good beer."
