My son's first fish caught on a fly

I couldn't make the recent Bassbugger outing since I ended up stuck without a car. My son (9 yrs.) and I decided to ride our bikes to a local pond, where he ended up catching his first fish with a fly rod! When we where done fishing, he asked me: "Dad, when we get home can we practice fly casting?" Hmmm... He never asked that before. :D

Tell him congrats! I met him at the Blowout and he seemed pretty enthusiastic. Now he'll progress (or digress) from enthusiasm to obsession.

I think that was Tom's son Andrew at the Blowout. He's been coming to most of the Monday night fly tying sessions. It's really cool to see younger people getting interested!

 

I've also had two other friends of mine start fly fishing. I took them out and let them use my gear. They are now looking for outfits for themselves.
