First Big Catch in 1958

Going through some old photos and, at my wonderful wife’s suggestion, I thought it would be fun to put up this picture taken in July of 1958, that’s 60 years ago this month. Can’t say I remember the picture, the fish or the trip to the Catskill Mountains as I was only 1 1/2 yrs old. But considering the occupation I’ve enjoyed and made a living at for the past 35+yrs, I guess you could say this photo was prophetic. This was my first fish, one of many to come. I can’t remember if it put up much of a fight, but considering my size, I’m betting it was an “epic” battle and I proudly prevailed.

You never know what the future holds!
