Passing it on
Read a post a while back about one of our members helping some folks so their experience on Sr could become more memorable
That's GREAT IMHO.
How about some more of the same-I'll start
Long ago was a hundred yards below Kiddie and there were two guys and a kid about 12 getting ready to leave.
I hooked up a nice Hen and gave it some slack and decreased the drag on the spin outfit.
Said to the kid "hey can ya hold this rod while I light up a cigarette".
As he took the rod the fish moved and he was shocked and tried to give back the rod.
I said No - you hooked it you play it- he was thrilled.
He played it a long time and after a while someone with a net came over and eventually landed the fish for the kid.
Kids uncle and father had arrived and said they were just leaving for someplace I don't recall hundreds of miles away.
Said they had been there for 3 days on their first Sr trip and hadda go but this was the first fish any of them had on.
The kid was as happy and proud as a kid could get.
Lots of photos were taken by the Uncle.
The father pointed over towards a tackle shop and said they were gonna leave off the fish, have it mounted and shipped to them.
Memories made all around.
