Derby Days

My dad always had a love of the outdoors and he loved to share it. We grew up fishing, ice fishing, hunting, camping…many of my fondest childhood memories are of these times. This picture was from probably one of my favorites. I couldn’t have been more than 5, but my dad entered us in a local derby. I did it! I won biggest fish of the derby… First place! My prize you ask? My dad got a gold watch. Given he probably did most of the work, I don’t remember what I got, if anything at all (must have been a great). To this day he has the watch and we joke about how I won the derby and he got the prize.
