Default The local derby

Last weekend I took my daughter Maeve to a youth trout derby run by a local sportsman's club. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the brookies were biting. The club stocked about a half mile of stream with 500 fish for the youngsters to fish, all Brookies anywhere from 8 to 12 inches. What I like about the Derby.....all the kids get a prize. There are no prizes for the biggest or the most caught, or anything like that. All participants are winners!

Notice her right hand on the line. I bought her a beautiful vintage Fenwick 6 foot 5 weight fly rod and reel, but its not PINK!

Maeve caught and released 8 trout in about half an hour. Talk about peaking an interest! And yes, fathers, at age eleven you can see why my nightmares are just beginning! Not with fishing......with boys.

Nice pics and report Homer...not sure you'll find a pink fly rod unless you phone Barbie to see if she wants to sell hers....but If I remember... Wright & Mc Gill,Elkhorn and TFO...have a special model for girls .
Have a look on their sites.

Homer check out TFO and Ross; I'm pretty sure both offer Pink rods of some sort.

While the wife and I would have liked to have a girl, I'm kind of glad now we didn't. It's a shame they have to get older and intersted in boys...
