Tonight my daughter wanted to go play at the park so I said ok. After a while she got bored and asked if I could teach her to fly fish. I had to jump at the chance to have a fishing buddy. After a few minutes of coaching she got roll casting down pretty good so I let her try for real.

And here are the results.

I'm a very proud dad. She also told me "Dad, I like fly fishing"

A very good story... Moments such as these will sustain you later in life.

You're a good dad.

That is stellar! The desire, the hard work, and the payoff...it just doesn't get better!

Lucky man! How old is she? It is probably a number of years before I try with my baby girl (just turned 3). Not sure what age is reasonable, but I'm looking forward to it. She already has a little Barbie spincaster that she plays with. Gotta start simple, then work up.

Well done. Now that I have children of my own, my best fishing memories are with them. Below is my son with a small cutty on a Tenkara Rod. tenkara is so easy for kids to pick up. We had both single hand rods and Tenkara on this trip. My son actually out fished me. "My excuse is that I spent all my time helping him...."
We saw a black bear, a rattlesnake, and lots of small fish..... all in all, it was a great trip and created many amazing memories. We should all be lucky enough to teach a youngster how to fish.
