Another Convert

As a few of you know, I started fishing again after a 30 year layoff when my brother-in-law moved in due to hard times (if it happens to you, just say NO!). He got me fishing again. First bait drowning, too boring. Then spin casting, not as boring but still... Then I took up fly. He started calling me a fishing snob, an calling it rich man's fishing. You know the drill.

Well, this year I've been taking him out fly fishing. He was skunked up until this Memorial Day. He caught his first fish (a chub) on the fly. He said it was like lightning hit the rod. He said "I had no idea it was like this." I said "Uh huh" and kept fishing. He caught a few more and I think he may have a different view of fly fishing now. Matter of fact, I wanted to go spin casting after bass, he wouldn't put down my 4wt. What have I done...

That's exactly how it starts. As an offshore bait fisherman, and later, a spin/baitcast fisherman, I didn't know what to make of this fly fishing business for years until a friend force-fed it to me. Now, I can't bring myself to pick up the other rods unless I have no choice.
