Nice, Kray. I only wish someone had started me early like that. Congrats to both of you.

Chaz,
In 30+ yrs of ff-ing, never owned or fish a royal wulff. Since I struggle to tie a #2 circus peanut onto 2x, I doubt I'll be tying any flies that small. #20-22 is as small as I will ever go. If they won't take it, I move on to a different fish.

Sas,
The boys have fully stocked streamer boxes ranging from #10 buggers up to #2 sex dungeons. They've tried them but haven't scored yet.

Bill,
Crowe beetles? I'd have to put the kid in a time machine and take him back to 1986 since that the last time I owned a crowe beetle. LMAO. Foam is easier to work with , more durable and floats better.

Dave,
I'm grooming the kid to give you and alby a run for your money. He's aware that you 2 are notorious for catching when others can't and that you always seem to have the big fish of the day. His fighting skills have improved. He'll be man handling 20" fishin no time.

Good work Kray...gotta pass the skills on now that you're starting to go...totally kidding...well maybe old enough to "go" on yourself ;)

I've been working teaching the GF...started out on a inda rig as well. First day she hooked a couple in the kiddie pool but none to net. The second time out she got into fish on the indy right out of the gate...we came to a pool with risers all over and she closed the day out with a couple on dries...I was psyched!

Krayfish, nice job on passing on the art. Also congrats to your nepfew. I was a lucky as he is. My dad intorduced my to FF when I was 12. My dad introduced many a FF to the art. I salute any of you guys out there that help teaching FF. I have a couple of guys I am teaching myself. It's a great feeling when you see someone you are teaching catch their first fish. On their own fly.

Again nice job,

GenCon

Great story Andy. I've been teaching my friend/cousin to fly fish. Started him on steelhead last October. He sent me a text on Sunday that he went out by himself and caught 6 trout including a 19 inch rainbow. I couldn't be more proud.

Dry flies are the only way to go. Welcome to the dark side.

How about those waders? Lol.


Same waders I wore when you got me back into fly fishing a few years ago on the very same water.

Was he using the Tricos from the fly box he won at the Lancaster Fly show?

Jeff,

He's already getting to be pretty crafty. He takes flies out of my box and saves what he's got for later. I'll remind him that he's got a Tully specific box and needs to start dipping into it.

I totally agree with ya!
I think it's a lot easier for newbies when they can see the fish hit the fly.
And the fun of catching fish on dries, seems to make the sport more appealing to them - right from the get go.

I learned to fly fish casting a brace of weties. Considering some of the tangled leaders I'd get, it's a wonder I still fish! But to watch the fish nose up to take a dry fly, that stuff is like magic!
