Default Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday my youngest son and I hit our favorite spring to celebrate my 57th. It was a great day with two 20-inchers for me (one brown and one cutthroat) and one for my son (brown), with many others sprinkled in for good measure! In all it was a happy, happy, happy day for me to be on the water with my son.

Here are some pics:

Due to my hip replacement and ankle fusion I have a hard time wading the sticky mud of the spring so my family took a page out of Nevada's Pyramid Lake and got me a ladder to fish from - this was it's maiden voyage and it worked like a dream:

A great day on the water.

Happy 57th!
Two 20 inchers for you and one for your son, you sure your sons fish wasn't 17 inches. How wild would that be, 20+20+17! Talk about a good omen...

Kelly: Happy Birthday and congrats on the gorgeous looking browns and cutties! That ladder is a great idea to help you out in that mud!
Now I'm jealous, I'd come over and horn in on your territory but I have been having too much fun over here!
