The year is 1972 and here I am waterskiing behind our 1961 75HP Evinrude Starflite III. That thing was a workhorse and brought us many seasons of summer enjoyment! Yep—been running Evinrudes for many years.
Here's my "Throw back Thursday" entry......The year was 1967. This was my first fish at the age of 4...a little crappie. Dad tied a line to the top part of a two piece rod blank. I would find clams on the beach and use the meat inside them for bait when I ran out of worms. I sat on the end of a "T" dock and fished in the corners, where I could watch the bluegills and little crappies go after my bait.
Of course I was too young to drive an evinrude yet. lol However, Dad worked for Evinrude at the time, so this still counts, I think.
