You and Kris introduced me when I was 11 when you first took me fishing.
My favorite outdoor memory was 3 summers ago. Umm, I was13. We were at Lake Henry it was the 3rd day and the finial night before we had to go back home. So that night we were fishing and it was dark and about 8:30-9:00 we heard Jordan's rod bell rang and we were happy for him. Then Kris saw him struggling so he took the rod,and Kris was playing with the cat fish he realized it was a huge catfish and when Kris thought the fish was tired out he gave the rod to Jordan and then Jordan was reeling the fish in and then the fish jumped out of the water and snapped the line the fish took the hook and one of Jordan's weight then about ten minutes later I caught a Carp and I took a pic with my fish an then I looked at the picture and and started laughing and Jordan was standing next to me giving the camera a dirty look,that picture is priceless.
Umm, ok... Jordan is her little brother and the really long sentence is really how she talks only really fast. Here is the picture she is talking about.

Do you have any advice for other kids that are learning about the outdoors? The advice I have for other kids is
you have to be safe, listen to all of the adults you are with, and trust your life jacket!!!!!!!! That is some good advice.
Doing this interview made me realize kids hang on to memories for different reasons. I thought her favorite memory was going to be when she thought she was caught on a rock and it turned out to be the smallmouth bass in the above photo. Instead, she chose a memory from a few days later when her brother lost his fish and then she caught a carp.
