Default Gaintfish Graduates & up coming trip

A lot of the older posters will remember Gaintfish from a couple of years ago. Well we had some issues with his grade back then, but I am a proud Dad now, he graduated yesterday from Father Ryan and even ended up with a 86.8 average. That is good for a private school like Ryan. He also scored the one of the highest grades in advanced English (hard to over come his WVA Hilly-billy gene he received from me. But the bad thing is that he had to graduate during Trout Fest. And would not give me a pass to skip his graduation for Trout Fest.
He has been accepted to Tennessee Tech,and is planning on entering the Fisheries Biology program with a English minor. He is currently writing short stories and sending them off to have them edited by a friend that is a English Major a couple years ahead of him.
For his graduation I am giving him a father son trip to Elkmont this weekend. If you see a older red Nissan with a short heavyset old man (me) and a tall skinny kid stop and say HI. It was a toss up between Elkmont and North river but he picked Elkmont for two reasons! one of course LRO, the other Volunteer pizza in Gburg.

Congratulations to Giantfish and you. Won't be down this weekend but look forward to saying hi someday.

Have a slice of pizza for me and cardfly Jr.

Vern,

Contratulations to Giantfish on his graduation and to you for taking the journey with him. What a great way to celebrate with a fishing trip. Nice to hear about your son's plans for post-graduation. I know he's pursuing his passion, what everyone wishes they could do and a few actually get to do.

Blessings on both of you and have a safe trip and tight lines.
