Fishing Canada-Young at heart

We were fortunate enough again this year to be hosts to Pete Paruch's family from the St. Joseph, Michigan area. I forgot to ask Pete how many years in camp this was for the family but let's just say this "wasn't their first rodeo." Pete was joined by his two sons Ryan and Jason along with his brother Randy and his son Zach. The elder statesman of the crew again this year was Pete and Randy's father Edward who just celebrated his 90th birthday in April. Edward, who is a WWII veteran and retired (27 years) Michigan state trooper, was making his last venture to camp and had an excellent trip and fished almost everyday with the guys, only sitting out the really crummy days early in the week.

Edward shared with us again this year several stories of camp from years ago, and also mentioned that this was one of his best trips ever. It was truly a pleasure to have Ed and his family in camp with us again this year and we at camp wish to say "Thank you" to Ed for making camp his fishing destination for so many years AND also to help remind us all that youth resides in our hearts.
