Default Trip today

I plan to take a great nephew fishing later for the evening. He's..well...has Downs Syndrome.. but just a wonderful lad. Not a guy in his family to do fishing with. We'll be fishing Walkers Creek,,home of good small-mouth and pan-fish too. Guess we can lay aside our 'big plans' to hopefully let someone else enjoy what we love to do.....feel that tug. He'll be using spinning gear I'm sure, so pray I do not show ANY arrogance toward him but exert all I can for him a good day fishing.

And a few pan-fish for the skillet wouldn't be a bad reward either ! I keep no bass ever.

Might even have a pic later,,depends.

Home early. Everything that could go wrong went wrong. I forgot my vision aids,,and I just can NOT tie a fly to tippet without them. No biggie. Was going to just let him fish,,but then he had a internal reel malfunction that I'm not sure what it was.

So, we punted. Regrouped. Went to local store and had soda and stuff. Plan to try it again tomorrow and hopefully be a better day.

When these days start, they do NOT improve. Experience as taught me to cut my loss's and try again tomorrow.

Mike

The right thing for an uncle to do for sure.
