Re: 2007 Fly fishing goals?
My boy needs to learn to fly fish the trout streams this year. Used to be it was OK that he used spinning gear. We'll do that too, but flies are the goal.
By the way, I took him fly fishing for bluegills on a lake where we waded the bulrushes. I put him in an area where he was guaranteed to catch fish, and I only stayed close enough to fix his fly and leader when he messed them up. At the end he told me, as only a 13-year-old honestly can, "Dad, this is one of the best days of my life."
Interesting that he should articulate it that way. That's what I think to myself whenever I go fly fishing, whether for carp, bluegills, bonefish, tarpon, trout or anything else that I might fish for.
