The Fishin' Hole
I'm sure many of you remember The Fishin' Hole with Jerry McKinnis, TV's longest running fishing program.
I was searching my files this morning for something else when I found this, Jerry's final words from the final episode.
Take your dad fishing, or your mom.
Heck with this "take your kid fishing" - take your dad fishing.
When no one is around to hear you, sing to your dog. It does wonders for your soul.
In your lifetime of fishing catch at least one of the three ultimate fish. A snook, steelhead trout, or a smallmouth bass.
Never kill a fish, or any animal for that matter unless you intend to eat it.
Set aside at least two minutes every day at least when you don't say anything and don't hear anything.
Be funny every chance you get and by all means be responsible
Here we go - Last but not least, I want you to get ready for things to happen just exactly like they are supposed to.
The simpler the outfit, the more skill it takes to manage it, and the more pleasure one gets in his achievements.Ē --- Horace Kephart
