This appeared in Country Weekly - June 16, 1998

Musical child prodigy Marty Stuart grew up on the road and onstage and never knew what he'd missed from boyhood until about two years ago when he and his father John found time to go fishing at a pond.

"Fishing is always something I've liked but never taken a whole lot of time to do," says 39-year-old Marty. "But it was time Daddy showed me how to tie a hook and how to bait it to catch a certain fish. And man, I felt like I was a little boy again, and that's when I realized I had missed a whole lot growing up.

"That one little simple thing, that was one of the greatest moments of my life."
