The next morning he and son went fishing. He felt the same damp moss covering the worms in the bait can, and saw the dragonfly on the tip of the rods as it hovered over the water. Back then they only had one or two cylinder boats that made a sleepy sound across the lake but now they have boats that make more noise then those in the past. During this, everywhere he would go he had trouble making out which he was, the one walking on his side, or the one walking in his pants. le acts such as picking up a bait box or laying down a table fork and he would suddenly get the feeling that it was his father doing these things or saying the words and it started to give him a creepy sensation. There had always been three tracks to choose from, but now their were only two-tracks to choose from. He later goes into explaining that now in 1941 they have different type of boats then they did in 1904. His son loved the rented outboard and he wanted to achieve single-handed mastery over it. He sooncame to realize that he is a father now and that he is much older and it is time to let go of those great memories and make great memories with his son, like his father had done once done with him. He is confused and feeling dizzy and doesn"tmt know which rod he was at the end of. He kept remembering his camping experiences as child and it wasn"tmt much different now. A week had passed by and the trip had been good so far. When the kids went swimming his son had tagged along and he watched him, as his hard little body, skinny and bare pulled up into the water and he himself felt the chill of death. Even though at first he missed the middle track, he was reassured by the tennis courts and something about the way the sun shined onto the tracks.
