We were often questioned why we were punishing our son by not allowing him to have any number of video distractions while he was growing up....rather than punishment we chose to view this time as a time to expand his awareness of things going on around him....he earned a Presidential scholarships to Alabama last year which gave him a tuition free ride for four years...any it also allowed him to accompany me on annual trips to the Smokies to camp and fish with good old Dad...he has now decided to attend Appalachian State next year and while up there yesterday he venutred out on his own and caught wild trout on his own on water he had never fished before...he caught the largest trout to date ...a big brown .....as well as his largest brookie....makes a Dad proud...
