Guess what Ryan caught today...

Himself! (sorry, no picture of that one!)  He got this hook stuck in his index finger today just before leaving on a fishing date with Jayden!

He knew what needed to be done; {from all of his reading of outdoor magazines...} but I knew I would not be brave enough/strong enough to do it!  It was in there pretty deep!  I told him he needed..."a man, a manly man, a strong manly man!"  So, he drove down the driveway and enlisted the help of one of the guys from the shop below!  He came back up and hooked up the boat and took Jayden fishing as planned!  What a tough man he is!  A big thanks to Gary for being "the man" to yank it out!  In all his years of fishing he has never done this before{at least to himself!} He did manage to hook my mom's finger with a hook still in the package, {while standing in the kitchen of all places} way back when we were dating!  She ended up going to the emergency room to have it removed and had to have stitches!!
Jayden was a happy boy, while his date was a bit late getting started, he did catch this nice steelhead!  He picked out the lure, set the hook and reeled it in all by himself!
