All the warm weather this week had me thinking about this time last year, when we fished the Outer Banks with our great friends Brian and Sarah. Aside from the big cobia Brian and I got on a fly one day, this was a real highlight: Watching my kids soak up some wisdom from one of my best buddies. There’s something about wanting your children to spend time with the people who’ve been an important part of your life, and when it happens, it’s a great feeling.
On this day, it was blowing to beat the band, the water was dirty, and prospects were dim. But we pounded out there anyway, and Brian patiently found some critters to bite our hooks. Weston’s smile–bigger than the fish–says it all.
