Raised the bar a little too high

    Took my nephew Chase out this morning trout fishing.
    My niece told me that she wanted 3 trout frying pan sized.

    It only took about 10 minutes and Chase had his limit.
    Chase loves Panther Martins

    As we drove home he told me he was a little disappointed. Didn't understand what
    he was talking about.

    He said: "Uncle Len, I was expecting a trout like the last two times we went out."

    I told him we have ONLY went out three times ever together and maybe the first 2 times raised the bar a little too high.

    We rolled into my nieces driveway and she met us at the truck.

    Her first question was....You caught ONLY frying pan sized trout correct?

    I said yes.

    She was relieved.

    "I was thinking about not letting him go with you anymore. The trips to the taxidermists were getting really expensive."

    Nice fish! If you raise the bar too high, one can just crawl under it ;)
