Last Fishing Trip Together

My co-worker and fishing mentor kindly took my father (right), my father-in-law (center) and me fishing on my father-in-law’s birthday. We had a very successful trip salmon fishing off the Columbia River Bar. The trip was in October 1988 and it was the last time we were able to fish together. My father and father-in-law loved people and were successful small business men. This picture reminds me how lucky I was to have enjoyed the company of these gracious and kind men.
