This year has brought many challenges.  My old man has passed away, mom is declining with dementia, my wife's cousin Bob, who happens to be a very caring person and the cornerstone of her father's family is now in the hospital with Covid.

On the bright side, I decided to neglect professional duties this weekend, celebrated 27 years of bondage with my wife, and took my son to the local NPS property for a little fishing. My boy also snagged a state job, and starts late this month. Autism has been marginalized in his life instead of him.

Caleb is no fisherman, but he does enjoy identifying plants, and whatnot.  I wasn't sure how he'd feel pushing up a high gradient stream.  This was his first rodeo, but he nailed it, and worked his way of this no trail beat like a champ. We hiked 5 miles, waded 1 mile, and fished for two hours. About 24 fish were caught.

Cherish those moments. Let Caleb and everyone else in your life know how much they mean to you.

Nicely done.

Looks like a nice outting. Nice rainbows for such a small stream.

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.

My condolences to you, friend. I'm sorry to hear about your father, and that dementia is mean.

On a brighter note - I'm glad your boy is enjoying the outdoors. Very refreshing to see this.

I'm not confident next year will be better.
