Great pic, Rip!

Fryeburg still has a lot of good water - have you been back recently?

Blue: That is a great setup you have, are you still spin fishing or have you moved on to fly fishing?

JJ: Great photos, they remind me of my grandson, I will send you a photo so you can see what I mean.

Thanks Larry, I'm told I had no less than 5 men helping with that bass and it was fish of the day.
We lived in San Antonio and my parents ran a weekend retreat for service men out of Fort Sam Houston. We would take them someplace every weekend and sometimes up into the "big bend" area. that's where this photo was taken, fishing the Rio Grande' I believe. The service men were drafted and taking training to be medic's. 50 to 150 would be there every weekend and we lived in the complex. They were all young guys, away from home and thier families. I was in the middle of everything of course, no lack of "we'll watch him for you Mrs Jordan" volunteers. My father had no interest in fishing but these gents helped get me hooked on fishing.... before leaving for Vietnam.

My dad was at Sam Houston for medic training right around that time... I'll have to ask if he was ever involved with that retreat!

Everywhere I've gone, I've met men who went through there and knew my parents. Makes "small world" so obvious through the years. It was "Seventh Day Adventist" based organization but open to anyone. Was a big mansion they bought, across from San Pedro park, north west of the hemisphere tower.

Christians that got drafted but wanted to stay non combative elected to do Medic work. Chester and Annie Jordan are my parents names in case he was there.

Thanks! I've dabbled in the past, but I am on a mission this year to become a competent fly angler. That's why I stumbled upon and subsequently joined The Fly Fishing Forum - So much fantastic information here! (and I know how to use the search function) As soon as I have a good photo of myself with a fly-caught fish, I'll be sure to update here.
