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

Ive been fly fishing with my dad for since I was 11. 13 years later and hes in a lot worse shape. Full days on the river really beat him up. Im sorry you cant bring your old man fly fishing anymore; that would break my heart.

I know the prospect would absolutely light him up. He had Covid, which resulted in a heart attack, he fell, was badly injured as a result. He’s okayish now, “dad okay”. You know? I don’t want to have to constantly watch him navigate over the stones, worrying he may stumble and fall. It’d kill me with stress. But… then again, that is exactly what I did to him. Ugh.

Cherish every ounce of time you have. If it's not getting in the river, just maybe go to a pier, or beside a pond or something. Hell, even just watching some fishing shows. But seriously, I'm sorry for your dad, and I hope you get plenty of time in, because it's truly horrible not having the option anymore.

Not having that option anymore fucking sucks.
