    Talking Gatlinburg with my daughter

    On friday I took my dauhter to Gatlinburg for a morning of fishing. The first couple of holes she didn't get any hits. She was useing the normal bait and tackle for this creek (corn and spinning rod). I've taken her fly fishing before but it is hard to handle a 8 year in the creek. We usually fish very little and play in the creek alot. But on this day she wanted to fish instead of playing in the water. The third spot she fished she caught a 16 inch Rainbow. It was landed on the upper end of the creek above Christus Gardens. After a long battle with this heavy brute my daughter finally landed the big guy. She was so happy that she had finally caught a "Whopper Dandy." That is what she calls big fish. We high fived each other and huged and I told her I was happy that she caught it and very proud of her. We fish until 10:30 where she finshed out her limit. I hope and pray that these special times that I spend with her fishing and hunting will instill the love of the outdoors. She has all ready booked a fishing trip for next Friday with her favorite fishing guide.

    May God Bless You and take a kid fishing you will enjoy it...
