My uncle has a farm pond here near Springfield, IL that I fish every summer with my grandparents. Some of you might remember a report I posted a couple years back of a big trout my grandfather caught when he came to visit me in CO. My grandfather passed away about six months ago. He taught me to fish and was basically my dad. Not only did he take care of me when no one else would but he was also a public educator for almost fifty years. Just an all-around solid guy. He loved the farm pond and always looked forward to fishing it. So, we are going to put his ashes in the pond and have a "celebration of life" ceremony. The ceremony is in a couple days so in the meantime, I took my little bro fishing for a coule hours. It's always a lot of fun.
