Men... on a tag, that is!

Louise has chosen "Men" as the theme for this week's Tag Tuesday.  My tag is a photo of my father from so very long ago!  He moved from Utah to Oregon to teach high school--and to become a cattle rancher-- in 1937.  He and my mother both loved fly fishing; this photo is of Dad measuring a steelhead he had caught.   Dad died at the age of 65 in 1981.  (I printed the photo in sepia on cream-colored textured cardstock and inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress ink. Then I stamped the words in the same color of ink.)
