Another fishing story! We visited

Another fishing story! We visited HBR last year for the first time. It was great to return this year to the same very clean, caring staff and well run resort. Our 19 y.o. son who has Autism and other disabilities finally asked to fish yesterday while we were out boating. He usually sits and reads and sometimes swims. We always encouraged fishing but learn to accept his kind “no”. We didn’t get him a fishing license but we thought it would be worth the trouble if we got caught. Our “lefty” son learned the steps necessary to cast his moms “righty” reel and did it quite well. In no time, he was reeling in perch, crappie and sunfish and didn’t want the day to end. We don’t get too many smiles from our sweet Lou but the grins and inward Joy was priceless. The environment here is one of the most peaceful and the family time witnessed around the docks is so genuine. I can’t help but think that it fostered Louis wanting to fish. We live in a lake community so we are hoping that the seed that was planted at HBR will grow!
