Missing My Dad

I remember once when Dad and I were down in Honduras. He rented an old 206 and we flew around down the coast almost to the Nicaragua border near the Caratasca Lagoon and Puerto Lempira, "the Moskitia Coast". We knocked around fishing for Tarpon several days and stopped in one afternoon to a small strip at Brus Lagoon. An American had set up a Tarpon camp there on an island out in the Lagoon, "Cannon Island". We hired a dugout and made our way out there, spent the night and fished the next morning at the mouth. Dad hooked a great Tarpon and fought it for over an hour and had him at about 20 feet from the boat and he broke off. I got it all on film, probably the last video I have of my Dad as he was killed in a car accidient the next year in Chiapas Mexico. Can't beat memories especially the good ones!
Miss you buddy
