Last year, on my first Father's Day as a father, I introduced my then 2-month-old daughter to one of Bear Creek's finest brown trout. As you can tell from the two pictures above, she didn't love it (or even like it for that matter). But, I'm stubborn enough, so this Father's Day, you'll find my family on the water, at some point, introducing my now walking, pseudo-talking 1-year-old daughter to her annual Father's Day trout. I have faith that this year's Father's Day trout will be better received than last year's. Why? Blind faith...and my daughter loves playing outside in the dirt more than everything but her mother and hide-and-seek.
To all the new Fathers, not-so-new Fathers, and veteran Fathers, enjoy your day wherever it may be spent.
