He carries on the father-son tradition by bringing his own son out to the lake, experiencing flashbacks to his youth.

Gathering the courage to tell his father that he was going to go fishing with his friend was hard for the young man to do because he knows it would change their regular routine of fishing together and possibly hurt his father. While contemplating on how he should tell his father, the young man thought, “It was a very serious thing” (16).

However, the young man and father’s relationship won’t completely change because they will always have a strong foundation, which they created when the young man was still a kid and they spent a lot of time together. The young man and the father spent so much time together while the man was a kid to the point that “his father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys” (20-22).
