I've taken my 10 year old fly fishing for pan fish in ponds several times. He loves fly fishing. He's been begging to get on the river. Thanks for making that possible, Eddie and Roberta. We were only on the stream 2 hours and he didn't catch anything. He still needs to learn the overhead cast, but he managed a pretty good drag-free drift and mended his line pretty well. He loved being in the water!
My son was 8 when I took him on his first fly fishing trip at the LMFR. That was 7 years ago when the river was in such great shape as well. Needless to say, he's loved it ever since. There have been some great father/son times on the river because of it. Hang in there. He'll really get to enjoying it before long.
