Son in law's first fish on the fly
My new son in law has recently taken up fishing so I gave him a fly rod that I had. It's nothing special and the price was right for him. He put new backing and line on it. Got some instruction from Bass Pro and has tried a few times.
I took him crappie fishing this morning and had him bring the fly rod. The crappie weren't cooperating so I had him rig up the fly rod to see what he could do. I'm definitely not an instructor but I did manage to help him out and he started casting better.
We decided to try the crappie again but they still weren't cooperating. Decided to get the float tube out so he could try that with the fly rod. Low and behold, he caught his first fish on the fly!!!! It was a small large mouth. Needless to say he was pretty proud. He's pretty motivated right now. I think he may become a fly fisherman. I'm glad to help him.
