E goes Fly Fishing!

An Dinh

My cousin Emmanuel's first time fly fishing.

I warned him ahead of time that learning to fly fish in the winter isn't ideal. 

Rain turned the packed snow to ice.  I'm standing on an ice rink!

I say : "It's cold. The fish are less active. There are fewer places to find fish. "

 

 

 

 

Don't mind the cold?  Then follow me...

E's response: "I don't mind the cold" 


E feels the power!  He basks in the GLORY!

I knew we were on the right track when after slogging the river for about an hour I suggested we go after 5 more casts.

But after 5 casts E wanted to cast a few more times because we saw a few rises on the far side.

E was getting pretty good at casting the nymph rig by this time.

Our rainbow warrior and midge weren't producing so I tied on a Utah Killer Bug.

While I was answering a phone call E hooked into this guy!

A 14 inch brown!  Pretty good for that spot which holds mostly smaller fish.

We celebrated with high fives and micro-brews.  We sampled several of Squatters' finest.

Whew!  These are not the ideal conditions to teach someone to fly fish.
