Wayton family builds fishing bond


ROSEDALE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – On a perfect day in Parke County right next to the Thorpe Ford Covered Bridge, there’s an impressive streak that continues.

Geoff and Kurt Wayton have been fishing together for sixty days in a row.

Geoff says,”One of the issues that a lot of people have with this coronavirus is that you feel like you have a lack of control for what’s going on in the world or what’s going on in your situation so this is some way, every evening we go out and fish and it’s like you have a little bit of control daily and structure.”

“Lot of adults right now are filled with emotions ranging from despair to fear and I don’t think kids need to be a part of that. Hopefully when this is all over Kurt will just remember this time he fished a lot with his dad.”

Some of their favorite sports are near and dear to Hoosiers’ hearts.

Geoff says,”We utlitize covered bridges. I’m not sure why? Probably an Indiana thing. They are a beautiful backdrop and the access is easy for kids.”

Don’t expect this streak to stop anytime soon.

Geoff says,”With the late sunset out here there’s no reason not to do something like this. We are enjoying it. Some day if Kurt says I don’t want to fish then it’s over, but for right now he’s having such a great time researching on his own on where we can go next and he has a lot of maps so he picks a place out.”

“I’m sure we can hit a hundred. A hundred would take us right up to school.”
