Start them young

First fish is on his great great grandmothers old cane pole that I started on over 60 years ago. Then this is the first fly the kid tied and the trout that ate the fly. Installed a pretty big grin.

Yep, that's exactly what I was looking for. Love those pictures. Especially the smiles. You're a great Grandpa.

I miss those days.  Kids are grown and too busy to have me any grandkids yet.  Great job.  Cute grandkids!

Thanks. He's a good kid. His parents doing a great job with him or he wouldn't see me as much. I have a low tolerance for spoiled brats.

They don't have to be related. Check some local Boy/Cub scout packs. I helped a young man get started fly tying and fly fishing about 30 years ago. I got a Christmas card from him some years later with a picture of him fishing with his son. Pass this stuff on. I know I've passed on worse habits.

I am so glad there are people like you guys, who are willing to entertain kids and keep them away from me!

Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!

It's more fun to play where you know it bugs a cranky old curmudgeon. Why fish in water that has no fish?
