    Zacks first fish was a rainbow and soon he had a brown and a brook.
    We were winding down and i told Zack to give his rod to Eli and wade out with me ,i showed him how to hold my fly rod and told him to let the water drag the nymphs and lift the tip and flip it forward ,it was a nice little cast and he was rewarded with his first fish on a fly rod.It was a small rainbow.

    I had a great time with him as did Eli.He chose to stay at my house til his mom got off work instead of going to his grandmothers,so we watched cartoons ,true grit and he ate popcorn and spaghetti.He told me when he left he didn't need his casting rod anymore,I think he might be hooked on the fly.
    very good he have a trout slam

    Quick evening stop with some family friends. Despite tubers, heavy fishing traffic, splashing, and screaming at high volume, we managed to hook a few little planters for our little river warriors.
