    Default Brookie fishing with my son

    For the last 4 years my son and I have gone on a camping trip to the Shenandoah valley/mountains. Every time we go, we always throw in a float down the Shenandoah to fish for small mouth bass, itís always been a blast and usually ends up being a 50+ fish day for each of us. However, this year there has been so much rain in Northern Virginia that all the rivers are blown out.

    Our backup plan was to drive south and do some fly fishing for trout, but those rivers are blown out too. So plan C was to hike down from the top of the mountains and fish for brook trout. It was his first time fly fishing for trout and we had a great time, although a bit frustrating at times for both of us but still...it was a lot of fun.

    Yeah, fishing with kids can have its own challenges but looks like those will be great memories down the road and possibly a spark for future trips. Good to see and keep the memories coming.

    I'm always glad to see the younger generation out on the water instead of on the sofa playing video games.

    I hope this turns out to be a regular outing for you two, and by the look on your son's face, it looks like he had a great time.

    Yea he's hooked.That smile say's it all.
    I love to see parents teaching their kids to fish.That's how most of us got started.
    Kids here do not want to fish unless it IS on a video game so Congrats to you and your son on a great day together.
    Beautiful fish too.Thanks for sharing with us.

    Gotta love those native Brookies from headwater streams. Very cool.

    Taking the kid fishing, with a plan A, B, and C, good on you!

    Dad and I didn't do any of this growing up, we both regret it.

    Awesome pics, I wish more dad's were out spending time with their kids.

    Edit: Forgot to say, you can always catch more fish with a Braves hat on though.

    Great stuff.
    I have pictures just like that except it's my grandson.
    Your son even has the same waders my grandson had.
    Enjoy the time together.
    Today is always the first day of the rest of your life.
    Use it wisely.

    Back at camp, just loved seeing the little pair of waders hanging next to mine.
