Every adventure with my dad is memorable. He was and is the most influential person in my life. He taught me everything I know about fishing, hunting, trapping and everything outdoors. I try to instill in my son everything that my dad taught me. My son and my father, both pictured above, have such a special bond as well. The three of us spend as much time as possible on the stream and in the woods. One of the most memorable trips with my dad was the summer after my senior year of high school. We traveled to Potter County, Pennsylvania to fish for native brook trout. We fished the West Branch of Pine Creek for three days. We caught and released over 200 native trout. Yes, we caught so many fish and that was fantastic but it was such a memorable trip because it was the last trip we took together before I went off to college and stepped into another chapter of my life. I will never forget that trip with my dad!
