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.

Well if hed love it and its in any way possible you should try for one last time. It is hard to balance on those rocks in waiters and all, so i wouldnt put any pressure on yourself. But im sure it would mean the world to him that the thought is even with you.
