The Snake River and my good son Brent

My son Brent and I had the good fortune to go fishing yesterday.
Every year I fish with Matt Elliott and his brother Adam down in Owyhee County in southwestern Idaho on the Snake River. Matt is my oldest friend. We have been friends since we discovered that in 7th grade we had every single class together. Using Adam's boat we travel miles down the river to our secret fishing holes and catch tons of smallmouth bass. We've done it every year and every year we catch tons of fish. This year Brent came with us and we had a great time!
