My dad surprised me with an undergraduate graduation fly fishing trip to Kremmling, Colorado last summer. It was a trip of a lifetime. We jammed to bluegrass music, caught monster rainbow and brown trout in the streams, and even reeled in some powerful lake trout. At the end of each day, we found a fun restaurant and ate delicious food, drank margaritas, and had fun retelling our stories from our catch of the day. We even found a monster truck festival and it was a hoot! I love my dad and will forever cherish the memories from this incredible trip.
