Long Way to Go Troutfishing

And so son and young grandson left the dessert and came all the way to southeastern Minnesota to visit and go troutfishing. Of course they had to go canoeing on some larger rivers before checking out the spring creeks for fishing

Then there was an invitation to our friends and neighbors Dick and Sharon  for supper and a chance to check out Dicks new Ranger.....

Our son,  being a biology and chemistry teacher, meant there would be some specimens collected including fireflies and other critters.
We also took some trips to check out other flora and fauna including the much (since I was a youth) modernized St. Paul Como zoo....
I'm sure the highlight for the novice young fly fisherman was catching them which he and his dad did a lot of.....


You catch them, then you have to learn how to clean them.  The eat em part comes easy

  7. I'm glad he's learning about cleaning the fish, as well as eating them, which as you say doesn't take much learning. :-)

  9. That looks like a nice catch! My Minnesota grandsons came to South Carolina to fish in the ocean this summer. Isn't it great to have grandboys around?!!
