Today, a very young cowboy approached a favorite hole and spotted a three and a half inch trout stranded in a small depression in the sand. Quickly realizing that CPR was out of the question, I scooped the barely breathing little guy into my hands and put him in the water.
To my delight, he swam away in a few seconds and I had to smile.
It’s not always about the number of fish you catch.
