Calm before the catch

My name is Paddy and this is my dad and me fishing my great granddaddy’s pond who watches over us and gives us luck. This picture was taken just before I reeled in my first big bass, a day I’ll never forget. I’ve always been the worm boy for my dad but this time he taught me how to cast and reel it in. My dad is the best teacher and and fisherman I know. I can’t wait to grow up and be as great as he is.
