Finally put down the swords and took my son to Fishing Creek. He's been battling addiction for over 10 yrs now. I know there's alot of folks in the same situation. He's been locked up, wrecked several cars, od'd twice. Not looking for simpithy here, having 32 yrs clean and sober myself. My point is that it's a fd up world we live in but sometimes just standing still in a favorite fishing hole can be more cleansing than imaginable. He has 9 months clean now, still alive. And yes we had a few rainbows sacrifice themselves to the fly.
Works for me! 20200425_101651_HDR1.jpeg

LB...….. That's a tough story, and one that's hard for me to imagine. I hope your boy stays clean and sober and you continue to build on good days spent fishing.

Low baller ur post really hit home. 18 years ago I lost my way. Gave up everything I love family,friends,fishing,etc for addiction. I was just like your son. 7 years state prison, Multiple OD’s, and a father with swords up whenever I came around. Never give up. Addiction is a struggle that others can’t imagine if they haven’t lived it. 
came home in 2013 and stayed clean since. Life is great now. 
Good job, I own a house on 12acres in the country, own two boats, 2 cummins, just got married and workin on a family of my own. But most importantly my relationship with my father and my brothers are better then ever. 
     I hope you and your son the best. If I can help anyway with my experiences don’t be afraid to PM me.

Proud of you Hachimo! And thanks to all for your support. We all have our sh#t. Just felt the need to pay it forward.
Keep the pics coming in reports. Alot of beautiful fish and good people. We get what we need, not what we want.

Took a run to fishing creek yesterday, too nice to sit home pouting. Was hungry for a fat home grilled cheese burger. Not a pack of burger too be found in the store. Really?
Got Trout? Works for me. 20200428_103958.jpeg

After nine weeks off I’m back to work tomorrow. It has to happen and I think it’s the right thing to do. Longest I’ve been out of work in the last thirty years.
Other than the fact that the weather sucked it was pretty awesome to have had the time off. Oh well, time to make the donuts.

Good stuff John. I've spent the last few years guiding deer and goose hunts for fellow vets and law enforcement. One of my stepsons is a Pa State Trooper so he's always getting guys to come out. We have alot of fun even when the hunt is unsuccessful. Great people, all with similar life struggles. It's all about paying it forward. If it wasn't for a stranger helping me 30 some years ago, well you know the drill. I'm no professional but if anyone wants to go or just shoot the sh#t just pm me. I'm in the southeast pa area.
Works for me.

The good deal for youth smoozing is keeping them from the enablers that introduce them from the bad stuff. Keep your children close, the enablers farther.

It's a long road. Sooner or later you have to choose, vertical or horizontal. Took him to the local lake and let him run the gear. Walleye boards and diver plugs for musky. He has 6 yrs now. No takers but smooth sailing. Works for him.

The alleged friends are not your friends, they are the enablers. Like the guy who invites you for a drink after work, NOT Your friend.
