Last month I gave my friend Andrew’s son an old Cortland fly rod for him to play with while Andrew and I practiced our casting on his lawn. Evan took to casting right away. It was awesome to see. He was a natural. With some practice, he’ll be out casting all of us in no time. On Saturday Andrew took his son to a local pond that is stocked with trout once a year when the water is still cold. They fished for a few hours and caught some bluegill. Next Sunday we’re heading out there to catch some fish and with some luck Evan will land his first trout.
There’s nothing better than passing on the sporting traditions to kids. If you’re looking to get your kid into fly fishing, check out http://www.takekidsflyfishing.com/
