Although I’m not with either my father or my father-in-law this Fathers Day, I wanted take a minute to honor them. Both have been incredible mentors and role models for being a better man, husband, and someday a father, and I consider myself incredibly blessed to have them both in my life.
I have also had the honor of having been fly fishing with both of them- my father-in-law on several occasions, and my dad last summer, but plan to make that a more regular occurrence. My father-in-law is actually the one that got me interested in fly fishing so in many ways this website would not exist with him taking the time to teach me how to cast. It’s a great feeling to spend time fly fishing with either of my fathers and to share with them the feeling of accomplishment and fulfillment when one of us finally has one on.
Women may not understand how we can enjoy a day trudging around in the water, exchanging few words, and oftentimes not even being within sight of one another, but to those father-son pairs that have, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
