Every Father's Day, my daughters take me fishing. Every year, that is all I want. This
tradition started just months after Kaitlin was born and enters into it's third year in 2005.
The past couple of years, Caroline certainly had the edge on Kaitlin as Kaitlin was concentrating
more on learning to walk and speak, than on fishing. However, after just 2-1/2 years, Kaitlin
made her presence felt, not only catching her own fish and holding them, but by also capturing
the largest fish of this year's derby.
I'm so proud of both of my daughters. This year we faced some rather tough conditions with a bit
of a strong wind, but that didn't deter either of them from making the most of the trip and picking
up some fish in the process. This tradition has definitely been started early, and the memories
that come of it surely will last a lifetime. It is always a highlight of my fishing season.
