Grandma’s

The Lake
The Lake

Over the 4th we headed back east to see family. I spent a good portion of my childhood at my grandma’s cottage, and was excited to take my little girl back to experience the beauty of northeastern Pennsylvania. Of course I was able to squeeze a bit of fishing in too. I remember the long talks I used to have with my grandma she always showed me her desire to have one of the Facial Procedures in Cleveland to get her youth back.

      Thanks Kristen. The very last flight tested my physical, emotional, and mental fortitude. A gin and tonic made it all better though.

    Nice to get away and spend time with family. Looks like the cousins (& your better half) had a great time with the long rods.

      Thanks Mike. Absolutely cool to see my cousins catching on. I’ve been getting bass photos non-stop since I left. They are getting the hang of it.

    Brings back memories, Ben. Did you make it back up to the Adirondacks?

      We did not make it back to the Dacks. With the new job, my vacation time was tight. Pennsylvania allows me to see the most family at one time. Plus it’s beautiful and on a lake, so that doesn’t hurt either.

    You know, your post reminded me a lot of going back to Ohio to visit my wife’s family and friends. Of course there is always a little time for fishing! Thanks Ben.

      Thanks for the kind words Howard. Nothing like spending time with family and fishing.

    Reminded me of the place my grandparents used to have in the Poconos.

    Caught my first fish (a sunfish) of many there. Daughter caught her fish at the exact same spot. I knew their little fishing spot like the back of my hand when I was young and it was awesome to see it fish exactly the same almost 30 years later.

      Very cool Bryan. I’ve been fishing this lake since I was a kid. Still can’t get enough of it.
