Daughters First Trout on Flyrod

Post By: johnski      Posted: 7/7/2022 12:20:50 PM     Points: 5460    
Daughter and I had a chance to do some fly fishing here last night. My daughter and I have tried a few times, unsuccessfully, to get her her first trout using flyfishing gear. Well last night it all came together and she caught a few nice feisty rainbows. The trout made a few exciting deep runs and she managed to keep tension while releasing her grip on the line when it dove deep. Anyway, I am very proud of this young lady, if that's not obvious!
We released some and kept some for dinner.

Congrats that's awesome! My oldest daughter is 6. I can't wait till she catches her first fish all by herself on the fly rod. I have hooked some for her and let her land them.
