Default Special Day

My wife and I are on our 1 year anniversary this year. Being the loving wife she is, she decided to take me to Blue Ridge, GA to fish the Toccoa. We got here early this afternoon and they were generating so I couldn't really fish this afternoon, but to top the day off she agree to go with me on a guided 1/2 day trip!! She's been talking about wanting to try fly fishing so we could have a hobby together, but she's easily frustrated to say the least (why she married me I'll have no idea but I just keep on thanking the Lord she did!) so she hasn't tried yet. We were walking around down town and we said hey, there's not really a better way for me to try to learn than with a guide, so let's try it! We don't do this very often so it'll be ok! She's getting so excited she even took my rod outside the cabin we're staying in and I showed her how to cast. She even picked it up faster than I did, which is no real surprise!

So here's to hoping and praying she falls in love with fly fishing the way I have!! Hopefully pics to come soon!

You know I hate to see a thread go unanswered

If you want her to become interested in fly fishing you are on the right track. Allow someone else to instruct her. I have found that I have better luck with instructing a complete stranger than when I'm acquainted with the learner personally. Furthermore I believe that when the student knows that the teacher is being paid there is a certain physiological aspect to it that is not there with a free guidance from friend or spouse. Paying = you have to get the most from the instruction, whereas when the teacher is your friend or in this case your husband the mind is sometimes not in the same focus as when dealing with a hired lesson.

Good luck, I used to fish in your neck of the woods a little too,

mcnerney and yonder like this.

Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
