A favor for me, please?

Me and Dad are going back up tomorrow to try for Big-Ass Trout.
I've caught BATs before, but my dad hasn't. Sure, he's caught some steelhead that would make my BATs look like bait, but that was years ago and they weren't pure freshwater fish.
Would y'all be kind enough to offer up a prayer or think positive thoughts that Dad not only catches the biggest fish tomorrow but that it'll be a fish that he'll remember?
He doesn't have a lot of years left and I want to give him something that he'll remember. I mean hell, I've already got the taxidermist lined up with the promise that he'll have the mount ready by his 69th birthday in mid-March. I know the memory of the catch would be enough, but I want something for him that he can brag on when folks see that trophy fish on his living room wall.
Do this for me please?

You love your father very much. You're a good son.

I do love my parents. Both of them raised me right, and Dad taught me integrity and a love for hunting and fishing. Momma just beat my ass a lot whenever I fucked up.

Happy to oblige....here's to catching a BIG ASS TROUT!

Thanks LulaBelle, I know he'd be thrilled. If he doesn't catch a BAT this weekend, I still have a couple of tricks up my sleeve.
Thanks for caring. You're a true friend.

Cross-country prayers and good thoughts for the biggest BAT ever caught!

We're gonna give it a shot. It's a balmy 30 degrees out, but the sky is clear. Hopefully it'll cloud over before dawn.
Thanks, y'all.
PS I'm not wearing my lounging britches up there.
