    My 6-year old son (Sam) and I managed to get in a couple of hours fishing this morning before the storms came in. We managed to catch a couple of channels including his best yet, a sleek 4-pounder. He hooked, reeled and landed her on light gear with 8lb line. I'm a very proud dad today.

    Might have done better if TVA would ever run some water. Seems like every Friday the river is still with no current. Makes it hard to fish. We were lucky to catch what we did.

    Congrats to young Sam! His age being less than the test of the line - he showed some angling finesse landing a 4lb cat on his own. I know what you mean about being a proud dad. My son is 20 now and I am still proud of him when out fishes his old man.
