Traveling for Trout
I don't have any record of his success in catching trout.
I have local trout. I live in a trout state. I'm still excited about going somewhere else to catch trout.
When I was young, loading up a crew for a couple hot summer weeks chasing trout in Colorado was a real treat. We usually camped and of course my uncle, cousins, and friends were all the sort of outdoorsmen with infinite patience whose every easy action brought success.
These memories of a few happy weeks are precious to me. Somehow, the thought of traveling again for the same sort of uncertain boyhood adventures fills me with joy, even if I too squint at the camera.
If the trout cooperate, that too will make me happy.
