In this short story, a grown son reflects on his father's last and liberating final days. The author takes us to the edge of the Catskill creek and its teeming natural life in which his father fished for fifty years. He imagines the old man's thoughts and a life fully lived - a life of which he intended to be in charge until its last moments.
