Ten-year-old best friends Jeremy and Gerard are quiet, country-bred, peace-loving souls who respect nature. They enjoy each other's company as much as they enjoy fishing in the river near their families' farms. Their peaceful existence is threatened, however, when they witness two bullies-Joey and Lance-destroy the sports pavilion. Jeremy and Gerard report the crime to the authorities, and now the miscreants plan to get even. During the first attack, Joey and Lance follow Jeremy and Gerard to their favorite fishing hole; as the two ten-year-olds try to escape on their bicycles, Joey and Lance run them down in their jalopy. As the assault begins, Jeremy and Gerard are saved by the intervention of Game Warden Herman Gordon. Impressed by the honesty and integrity of the two little boys, Herman befriends Jeremy and Gerard and takes them to his special fishing spot and on a weekend camping trip. They form a special relationship that warms the hearts of their respective families.
