Memories, especially fishing memories, are the source of great pleasure for me. Oh, there are memories I could do without, but on the whole I get pleasure thinking of times past.
Those memories are the source of many stories that I often share orally. While I enjoy telling stories, putting them down on paper, well, thatís not so easy. As you know, Iím seldom at a loss for words, written or otherwise when it comes to talking about fishing. Writing stories, true or not, not so much.
I have great appreciation for story tellers, being an avid reader of fiction. And we are fortunate to have, in my opinion, a great one here at FishExplorer.com, our very own Texas State Editor, Lloyd Tackitt. Over the years reading his work, blogs, books, and articles have given me a lot of pleasure. And I also feel honored to be one of the first to read, review and post his newest article on Fish Explorer.
It is with great pleasure I announce the latest article, short story actually, Fishing Vacation Ė 1930. Lloyd takes us back to the depression era on a Texas farm, hard times when simple pleasures, taking the family fishing create a lifetime of wonderful memories for the family.
Take a few moments to read this delightful story of fishing vacation. Iím sure youíll agree itís time well spent.
