Making Plans for the Year

Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 01/03/2011 (2673 reads)
My fifteen year old son, Greg and I went out late this afternoon to see the movie Tron Legacy. I was anxious to go with him just as soon as he asked me. It looked pretty clever I and remembered the original movie back in 1982. I was very young of course.

greg"Once again, the computer graphics were pretty good. In the movie Jeff Bridges is reunited with his son after 22 years. The plot was a little slow for me in parts. At one point I looked over at Greg with his 3D glasses and noticed a big smile on his face.

That smile reminded me of some of the times we had fun together over the past year. The first trout he landed this past year fly-fishing was one of those times we shared back in April. I had bought him some new waders. They were a little oversized, but he was a good sport about it and he was just happy to be out fishing.

At that point during the movie I felt a little bad. Not about the movie, but realized my resolutions for the upcoming year or rather the one I didn't make. I usually make about ten goals each year. The one goal I over looked was taking Greg out for some more time fly-fishing. Not that I would not have remembered to do so, It was just that I had not had put it on my list as of yet.

On the way home we talked about the movie and how much he enjoyed the special effects. We also had time to talk about fly-fishing and we have plans for a sulphur hatch this May.

I want to encourage you put a smile on someone's face this year and make plans to take someone important to you fly-fishing.

I think that this is an awesome post. I have felt this exact same way about my son and taking him on his first fly-fishing excursion. He is only 9 and I just got him his very first set of waders and boots. The expression on his face and in his eyes said it all. I thought maybe he was too young but after reading some of the posts about taking kids FFing, I thought to myself, I'm doing it, primarily because no one did this for me when I was his age. I might even consider taking the entire family so they can understand why I love this sport so much.

In 1982 I went to see Tron and I love it!
I thought nothing better could be done, This also was a time when I used hooks #2 or bigger!

Today I went to see Tron Legacy for the pure effects and there are planty of them, maybe 95% of the movie content.
Yes, Jeff Bridges (Kevin Flynn) is there but if you like him a lot go and see True Grit.

TRON Legacy
Correct me if I’m wrong simply amazing!
