I took my wife fly fishing. Several times. Got her her own box of flies so she wouldn't "feel bad" about losing mine. Gave her what lessons I could and stayed with her most of the time. She tried it, honestly decided it was not for her, and found some other things that interest her more. During her short time with a fly rod she caught one each of 5 different species of trout, a couple of which not many people catch. Still not her cup of tea.
Of course, maybe if just once I had taken her to a river that didn't have tall trees lining the banks on both sides for mile after mile she might not have spent so much time getting her fly out of the trees and she might have enjoyed it more.....
