While we were in the area we
decided to ride by our old home place about 10 miles from the cemetery. The
house was located on this hill. We were both raised up here as boys and had
fond memories of fishing in the pond that was located down below our house.
It had been over 40 years
since my brother and I had seen this pond. A lot had changed as far as the area
itself, but the memories remained where we went swimming, caught some of those large bass and super
size bluegills. This pond is where Dad taught my brothers and I to fish.
I can still see my Mom landing huge bluegills using green grasshoppers that my younger brother and I would catch for her to bait the hook. We would bait the hook for her and she would let us land the fish. We were no more than 5 years old. A long cane pole taught me the art of playing a fish then.
The spring that feeds cold clear water into the pond was still pumping. We drink a lot water from this spring over the years while fishing on those hot summer days. I know one can never go back in time, but if I could this would be one place I would surely visit.
