awesomeness: little big man

Spent a hard day on the water with my best bud last weekend.

 Oh a few fish were caught allright.  But they were hard won, each and every one.

My day's shining moment: my boy wading into the run, casting what must have been 20 times before he finally got the distance and aim to work out enuf to cover the fish rising sporadically next to the bank.  

But that persistent casting eventually did the trick, sticking that final cast- the fish turning, leaving his lie to run that fly down like a kid after the ice cream truck.  Fish On!

 Good work little man, that's how you get it done right there.


  1. Awesome to see fellow youth anglers! Although, he sure catches a lot more fish than me!

  2. Dude, you must be beaming. Looks like a great day on the water with the boy. Great fish and pics.


  3. Gaeron- I see the boy could learn a lot from you, keep up the good work!

    Ben- he's coming right along, a sight to behold allright. He has patience and you can't teach that!

    thx for checking in fellas- mjh

  4. This is the most awesome, encouraging, delightful post. Thank you! And you should be proud. Very proud of your Little Big Man.:)

  5. Really nice...Looks like the little man is going to be a pretty good fly fisher :-) Great post!

  6. awww that's so nice you guys, thx! I'm just happy he's willing to come out with me regardless of the results. I love seeing my favorite places thru his eyes, like discovering them all over again! mike
