Fishing for Life Lessons

One of the earliest memories I have of me spending quality time with my father is one day when he took me fishing  under a bridge in the Intracoastal waterways. Specifically, it was the Banana River and it was the Highway 528 bridge. The gear was primitive. When I say primitive I mean a yo-yo style hand real with 30 or 50 pound line, a one ounce sinker and a hook.

I was usually within earshot of those conversations, and after the passerby had moved on, I would reiterate their words assuring my husband that he truly was a lucky man to have me as a fishing buddy.
