Default gotta brag a little

More on my son then me. my leg and knees have been jacked up for a couple weeks (bad knees, fractured tibea) so I have been taking my son to the river and comeing back to get him. The doc wants me off them until he can fix them but my son really wanted me to go fishing with him today, said he found a killer hole, so i broke down and went, was just real carefull. I caught 13-16 browns one of wich weighd over 15 lbs and two bows, he caught 8 or so browns and one weighd over 6 lbs. Besides the fish and spending time with me son, it impressed me how much he's learnt in a short time. Other then a couple trips to put and take rivers in south MO, he has never really fished a "trout" river and most of his fly fishing has been gills and bass. Being 17 and only fished wiled trout a few months I think he is really tunring into one hell of a fly fisherman. From rigging to reading the water to wadeing the right way, wich I even seen two grown men splash trhough our hole at one point, instead of going behind us or better yet staying on the bank. Anyway just wanted to brag on my son a little and share a great morning with ya'all. Now back to staying layed up and tying flies I guess lol
Take care
Bear

OHHHH yeah BIG smiles Joni and yes Blue I am very proud of my son. It was one of those days that was just all it could be, he even put his arm around me a hug at the truck and said he was glad I went. My only other thought is this, since I have caught a brown and a bow over 15 this year should i get one tattoed on each side my chest with 15 lb club in the center LOL
Thanks guys have a good one

That was a great story! Sounds like you are raising a fine young man that's turning into a great fisherman.

Stay off those knees.
