As a fisherman and professional fly fishing guide, the single most gratifying moment in my many years on the water is the moment a young person catches their first fish on the fly when I am fishing with them. Unfortunately, today with competition from video games, Internet and general urbanization of our culture, it’s becoming a rarity to capture a child’s attention at all. They seem to be more interested in adding friends to their Facebook accounts. To make a child’s experience on the creek successful, you have to keep a few things in mind. A child’s attention span for any activity is tough to capture and even more tough to hold; especially when fly fishing. Make certain that the proposed area your fishing with a child has fish to catch. For inland waters, stocked ponds and streams can be productive for a good part of the year. For lake run fish in the tributaries, the timing is a bit more critical. Rule number one: make certain there are fish to catch!
Kim showing off with a beautiful rainbow landed last month while on a Travel Adventures’ escorted trip to Patagonian-BaseCamp, one of our favorite lodges. This day was the “best of my life “for Kim with over 40 trout landed and in hand. We are looking to return with an escorted trip to BaseCamp in January 2015.
