Quality time

Its nice and satisfying when one of our Fishing Holidays in the Florida Keys is more than just about fishing.  This recently happened when regular  Andrew  Kretzschmar came over for a holiday.  This time it was to be some serious farther and son time and I have to say looking at the photos I am more than jealous.  My darling wife first presented me with two gorgeous daughters and being very much a hunting, shooting fishing man even  though I did take them fishing it was hard work.  So when our third child was born and it was a boy I had high hopes same problem try as I did and all my friends saying  ” dont force him give him time ” but alas not to be and with his passion of football and golf just not to be.  However I do now have two grandsons and yes I have taken them fishing and I have taken my granddaughter and guess what they love it so its jumped a generation.  Back to Andrew and son Max some cracking fish for the week and a great last tarpon day just what the doctor ordered.
