Larry knows his way around fishing lures, Midwestern lakes, and how to cast a line. He spent many years loving his fishing hobby and even worked at a bait shop. Being quiet in nature, patiently waiting for “the big one” was an enjoyable and significant part of his life. So for his Dream, Larry wanted to get back on the water and cast a line one last time.
With the help of Kristen from Amedysis Hospice and the staff at Good Samaritan in Superior, Dreamweaver was able to put together two options for his dreams of catching “the big one”. The first involved going out on the boat with Live Well. Go Fish., and the second was fishing at the dock. Larry decided that fishing from the dock would be best, so Dreamweaver knew exactly what to do—supply him with all the things he needs for a day out by the water.
Wearing a tan fishing hat and tackle box in hand, Larry was able to go down to the lake and experience the beauty of nature. Unfortunately, late October weather had other plans and it was just a bit too chilly for him to comfortably enjoy fishing for very long.
However, he was still thrilled about the filled tackle box, camp chairs, fishing rods and different types of line. He shared his excitement with staff and residents at Good Sam and reclaimed his beloved hobby, keeping him busy and learning during the hard times of COVID-19.
Although he wasn’t able to catch the big one on that outing, he has hopes for the future. Now he is fully equipped and ready to go whenever the calm lake and peaceful nature call him back.
Thank you to Scheels for outfitting Larry with top of the line fishing gear, Good Samaritan for transportation, Live Well. Go Fish., and Amedysis Hospice Care.
