Getting to fish with friends isn’t something I get to do very often, primarily because I fish during the week while most responsible people are at work. But just before Thanksgiving, a buddy called and wanted to know if I had anything going on the third weekend in December.
Luckily, it just happened to be a weekend during which my wife politely asked me to find somewhere else to be. Honestly, looking back, I couldn’t believe how it came together. My buddy’s wife was taking their kids on a trip to Disney, and my house would be the scene of an all-girls slumber party for my daughters. All the adults agreed that a dads’ trip to the Little Red River in Heber Springs, Arkansas, was required. So we packed my kayak and the Flycraft boat and spent the next three days chasing wild browns in low water. The weather was awesome and everyone caught trout.
As expected with trips like these, it ended far too quickly but provided a lifetime of great memories. On the drive home we started planning our Winter and Summer getaways. Now we need to find a way to make it our wives idea.
