Yeah, it's pretty sweet - we're going home to FL for a week this Saturday, and usually she's the lookout while I'm sight-fishing snook and reds... I'm thinking the roles are going to be reversed this time...

Thats awsome! I wish my wife would show some interest, even if it was to just go along and watch sometime.

That's a great story and some beautiful scenery. You just might have a lifelong fishing partner now.
Congrats to her, and you.

We had a similar experience lately. My girlfriend realized that fishing was a lot more fun than just coming along with a book. Longest time we have ever spent together at a stream! I got her a small box, nippers, forceps, and some flies so she can be self sufficient. (last thing she wants is my help!)
She got her first trout on a black wooly and has been playing with my 3wt and 5wt. And now she took my 7wt to Florida with my bonefish flies

Looks like you had wonderfull time with your girlfriend.
It's very nice when you have someone close to you to fly-fish togeder, even if begginer, anyone who has passion for fishing can become your partner for life.

Aglohm, you're a lucky man (until she starts coming along all the time and you really just want that day alone, like Dennis was saying, but even then it's still a fishing buddy so it's not all bad). I'm working on long-term psychological warfare to get my fiancee into it, but she's a diehard saltwater fisherman and I haven't been able to fully convince her to make the transition yet... She made some statement about needing waders for fishing in NY the other night though... I think the campaign may be swinging in my favor.

TB, I know exactly what you mean about the self-sufficiency bit, offering to help can be downright dangerous at times...

Great post Aglohm, where in Florida is home for you? I'm from Sarasota, I always look forward to heading home for snook, redfish, and more recently tarpon.
