Default Grandson was chasing Bull Trout last Sunday

My 9 year old grandson asked for a spey rod last Christmas, so I bought him a 7 weight, Redington Dually. He has spent a lot of time on the Vedder practising. Yesterday he went chasing Bulls. Remember...this kid is only 9 and casting a spey!!

Congrats to the young fisherman. Great start to a lifetime of fishing. Nice to see that grandpa bought him the rod too.

Thatís the Upper Pitt River. He honed his casting skills on the Vedder for winter steelhead. Hereís a smaller Pitt bull.
