    Had a very special day today at 66 years of age I had the distinct pleasure to FF with my youngest son, Matt. We have fished many times before but never one on one as grown men, father and son.
    Today we took the DB up on the Skagit. It was great! The first time he's ever caught Pinks on a fly (one I tied) too.
    The pictures will tell most of the story so here they are...be sure to look for the money shot...with a close-up....LOL!
    Matt is in the Air Force, stationed at Mountain Home ID, I'm looking forward to some quality ID fishing with him.
    Anyway, it was a good day.
