Took my 5 year old son up to the Tallullah a couple weeks ago for our first father son trip. We had a blast. We ate junk, sat by the fire, roasted marshmallows, took a creek bath, shot the .22 and he even got to ride in the front seat on the dirt road. I'm not sure who had more fun. He caught both our limits on Saturday and Sunday(with a Spongebob rod), and we had fresh trout cooked over our fire. It's a trip I will never forget.
GREAT job Dad! I started my boys out the same way and the memories over the years have been incredible........perfect way to build a lifelong bond with your kids in God's great outdoors.
Love the pics too.........your son is blessed to have a Dad like you!

Fuller, I just saw this post. I remember how much fun you talked about when y'all got back. Unforgettable memories there! We will have to plan a few trips this summer with the boys! Especially since you know the good trout holes!

Very Nice!! Started fishing with my son when he was little like that. He never really got into fishing down here in the flat lands.
About 10 years ago, we started going up to NEGA for my birthday every spring, and now he's hooked. Now at 22 years old, he still looks forward to that first trip up in April. You can't pay money for that kind of happiness.
Makes me miss camping & canoeing when my girls were younger.
I was watching videos of Georgia rivers and found this video on you tube. Hope ya'll keep on camping together. I think this might be where they stayed: http://oldmillmuseum.com/cabins.html
This looks awesome. I'm going to have take my boy whom is turning 5 this month.
Any pointers? Anything you wish you could have done differently?
I wouldn't have done a thing different. And as for pointers, I would say take a good camera and a video camera. Plenty of little Debbie's and junk like that and a metal coat hanger for the marshmallows. I hope y'all have fun. It's getting to be that time again and I will be taking him up again after turkey season.
