Default Fly Times Are Here Again!

No. 2 son (9-years-old) has finally decided that it is time to learn how to fly fish!

I bought him his first fly rod six years ago, and Iíve been patiently waiting since then. He decided a few days ago that he wanted to learn.

Here are a couple of photos from his first casting practice.

Trying to untangle a birdsí nest in his leader:


Walking back to our campsite after snapping off his leader:


Iím so happy that this day is finally here. Iím planning to let him use fly (instead of yarn) tomorrow.
