A Morning with Caleb

Caleb, my great-nephew found some spare time in his busy schedule to spend a morning fishing a special section of a local stream with me. There was a time when I baited his hook, unhooked his fish, and even carried him across the deeper parts of the river on my back. Now at 16 he can look me in the eye without looking up and wear my old wading shoes :).

Even a lowly Rockbass can put a smile on a true fisherman's face.

Here's Caleb fishing the "Enchanted Pool". This section of water has produced some nice fish in past years but this time we came up empty.

A couple of pics of the water we fished. It's a popular trout stream farther upstream but few fishermen bother with it's lower stretches and that's just fine with me.

We did find a few smallies that were too hungry to refuse our offerings.

All in all another enjoyable morning on the water making memories to relive in years to come.
