Eagle Rock - Frying Pan River 2007

On Memorial Day Weekend, 2007, I took my Dad fly fishing on the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers in Colorado. It was an early Father’s Day present to him. He always took me trout fishing in Southwest Missouri in my youth, and I wanted him to be able to fish some big western waters. It was a wonderful trip, and the time spent was more valuable than anything money could buy. He is a veteran and a lifelong outdoorsman. He is older now, and his hands not as steady, but he still enjoys the outdoors as much as ever, and passed that on to me, and now to his grandson. Thanks, Dad. Love you.
