fish with anyone

Recommended Posts

#1.  My grandad.  The one who taught me to cast a spinning rod.  He hated bass fishing, but he loved to fish for crappie and catfish. 

 

#2.  Dad.  Fished with him a lot as a kid.  I ask him all of the time now, but he always says no.  He admits to not liking fishing now.  I realize now that he only went then because I wanted to.

 

3#.  Gerald Swindle.  Dude is hilarious, i think we would get along.

 

#4.  My son.  He isn't even here yet, but I cant wait to take that kid fishing.

My grandfather.  He passed away back in '93, when I was a kid he always said he wanted to take me fishing but he had some bad health issues.  When he passed away I was given all of his fishing gear.  He had everything, antique Flatfishes, Arbogast lures, Dardevles, Finnish made Rapalas, you name it.  Sadly, my stupid teenager self lost every bit of it.  A friend's older brother had a musky boat back in then.  I went fishing with them often and figured I'd just leave the tackle on the boat since we were going a few times per week.  Unfortunately, he was lazy about paying his bills and the boat was repossessed.  Every piece of tackle I owned was on there including my grandfather's, so in my later teens and early 20s, I had to start out from scratch :(

Speaking solely of living, anglers that have influenced me over the years and I haven't had the opportunity or pleasure to fish with; Spence Petros and Rick Clunn.

I lost my fishing partner last year after spending over 40 years sharing a boat with him. We made a perfect team when fishing tournaments and just really enjoyed each others company.

 

He left one of his caps in my boat that I didn't find until after he had passed. I now wear that cap every trip in honor of him. I miss him terribly.
