Thanks To all Dads on Father's Day from Bass Pro Shops Founder Johnny Morris!
Thanks Dad for being my best buddy, my biggest supporter, my hero, and the man I admired and respected more than any other. And by the way, special thanks for always making our times together hunting and fishing a priority.
There’s something extra special about being outdoors with your Dad. Just being immersed in nature together brings you closer.
I don’t have my Dad any more, but every time I get a chance to be on the water or walk in the woods I think happy thoughts of him, and the times he took me fishing and hunting. Those will always be some of my happiest memories. I loved having my Dad all to myself, even if it was only an hour or two, and even when we weren’t talking…he taught me so much. And now today, every time I get a chance to get away and be in nature, he is right there beside me in spirit.
It’s an extra special blessing to know the joys of fatherhood and to be able to pass along lessons learned from grandpa.
This Father’s Day, if you’re lucky enough to have your Dad, or to be a Dad yourself, I hope you’ll be able to get outdoors with your family – go for a walk or go fishing, and make fun memories you’ll never forget.
