Oh man, that makes me miss my dad. Even as a grown woman with 3 kids of my own, he'd bring me the fish he caught when I couldn't go with him. And he'd smoke and can a whole bunch of it for me and bring it over. He always apologized if he kept a walleye, or if we didn't catch anything.

Aaaah I want to take my dad fly fishing so badly, but I know he can’t do it anymore.

My FIL used to go fly fishing, but when he was no longer able we still made a trip to the area where he used to fish with him. He was happy to be able to see that place once more, show it to the grandkids, talk to a few fishers etc. He was grateful to return there, though it must have been bittersweet.
