40 | We were great friends approaching a turning point in our lives. High school graduation began a process that would change everything. By August, the three of us would be living in different cities. Time started to seem different, and the weeks of the upcoming summer more important. Growing up in North Louisiana, all of us have been really lucky being able to hunt, fish and spend time with our dads. But when our fathers said they wanted to take us on a special fishing trip to Georgia, we were definitely pumped, and the texting and planning began immediately. The fun started by just packing. Everything from a fly box to a favorite fishing hat reminds you of great times and starts the anticipation of more to come. We weren't wrong to be excited about this particular trip. Just after our plane landed in Georgia, we were picked up at the airport by a Cabin Bluff vehicle and driven straight to the camp. Without any rental car hassles, or need for grocery shopping, or running last minute errands, we were fans before we even drove through the front gate. As the driver turned onto the Cabin Bluff road, broad black iron gates opened up to a long road flanked by what seemed like endless rows of old-growth oak trees. It was beautiful but completely unlike the coastal fishing of South Louisiana and Alabama we were used to. As we cruised along, we spotted the familiar sight of a bird truck. Our conversation changed to Bob White quail and good hunting dogs, and we began to realize we'd arrived at what our grandfathers might have called a Success! Josh, Jackson and Carter celebrate with one of many redfish they caught.
