Fishing is foundation for ideal family tradition

FAMILIES OUTDOORS -- If you're lucky enough to still have kids around the house, don't let another season go buy without building some sort of outdoor family tradition: Something they can count on year after year, whether it's in person or in their memories. Something based around fishing -- streams, lakes, docks, boats, trips to the mountanis or out of state -- is ideal.

Fishing guide Anton Jones of Darrell & Dad's Family Guide Service has this observation:

"As we get older, those happy memories are an important part of our satisfaction.  I had a father-son team out on the boat for the kid's birthday.  This was his third year in a row!  It reminded me of the great times that I had as a kid with my Dad, on opening day of trout season."
