Fulfilling a Request

I enjoy looking at outdoor pictures, especially those posted by fellow bloggers. Howard at Windknots and Tangled Lines has shared some great blog images from his recent post. In his response to my comment about the post, he suggested that everyone should do a post like his image post. So I’m going to be the first blogger to fulfill his suggestion. I hope the rest of you guys will submit an “image post” in the coming days as well.

So many memories from this little pond; located a short distance from our house where my family lived. This little pond is where my brother and I learned to fish catching large bluegill using redworms and grasshoppers for bait. 
Jason home for a short time, a couple of years ago, he loved to fish Smith

My older brother who is in bad health now and will never make any more fishing trips--this image was taken from one of many trips I made with him crappie fishing on his home lake in Winona Miss.

Sure enjoyed looking through these photos of yours, Bill. Some great times, great countryside, and, some good friends. Isn't that what fishing is all about anyway? Will be looking forward to read and see how your fishing goes now that you live in Tennessee. Keep us posted.....................

Looking back on those images made me realize I have landed a ton of fish over the years and everyone of those bluegill, bass, and trout was a ton of fun. Cathey and I are doing well in Spring Hill. Thanks for the comment

You just can't put a value on some of the memories a single photo can hold. Thanks for sharing.
