so took my 12 year old son down to the creek, and he caught one....his second time out, and first trout on the fly.
I bought him a Pflueger 5/6 wt 8' with a medalist reel for his birthday last month. It was rather funny, he gets these twists in his line, not sure why, but was trying to unravel that when i saw the fish hit his fly. well there wasnt much i could do about it. so kept at the line. It was still on when we got unraveled, so he fought it and wore it out and landed it.
