Growing up on a lake we had many boats. My favorite was our fishing boat; it was "Old Trusty" to me, but her real name was "Barb" after my dad's mom. Both of his parents passed away when he was in his 20's.
"Barb" was my friend out on the lake. She'd take me to all the best fishing spots. My dad taught me, but I preferred to enjoy it alone. That's what fishing is all about to me-- solitude. Being at peace with nature; allowing the fish to find YOU. "Barb" is still alive & kicking, which is pretty impressive. I like to think I took really good care of her.
A lot like old "Barb".
