Your dad is smiling
I believe every father who reads your post is smiling.

Because, at some point in our lives, we all begin to wonder how we'll be remembered.

That's a wonderful tribute. We should all be so lucky, as to be remember so well.

This was not at all what I expected when I opened this thread. I agree with Bob and Guy, this makes me smile.

I don't fish nymphs hardly ever either, but I do want my daughters to learn more than just what I do so I'm going to send an envelope and let those flies hit another generation.

The Year of Ron's Flies (TR)

Post by foureyedgeek » Tue Jun 27, 2017 8:17 am

To date I've received NO envelopes. Zero, zip, zilch.

You guys are the worst.


This song was my request for his funeral.

The first week of June I drove north and east, to the camp we've spent almost a decade enjoying once I got my head on straight.

Its still beautiful & wild.
Image

Image

Image

And there was plenty of water this year, a welcome sight.

I chased hatches.
Image

And waited for the evening rise.
Image

I cast desperately and caught nothing.
Image

I caught natives and lots of stockies too.
Image

Image

And I fished an evening with my old man's closest friend and the coffin flies came off even though they were "over" and we caught a ton of trout and he's since said to me a number of times how much he had enjoyed fishing together that evening.
Image

We stayed too late.
Image

And got "home" later.
Image

Any my dad wasn't there, but he was, and I hope that's how it will always be.

Sorry for your loss. Wonderful eulogy.
