I've only been fly fishing about two years now and still don't know very much but my 12 year cousin asked me to teach him so I took him out today and hooked him into a couple brookies I didn't get anything myself but it felt really good to teach him and on his last fish I went to net it for him slipped and fell in a bit cold but still a fun day

Most satisfying when you teach what you've been taught AND when your student outperforms you. Great feeling and perpetuating the sport. Congrats!

Hi,

That's very cool, and I know you felt good about his being successful. I have taught many people to cast & fish, I do it as employment here in Alaska and although I do not fish when I have people with me I get a great deal of pleasure seeing them have fun and new experiences. My profile explains what I do for a living.....

I teach for food......just joking; a friend bought me dinner recently after I took him to several of my spots and got him to catch so many trout he lost count for the first time. I first gave him some basic lessons last year and he stated catching fish from then on after being skunked previously. It really does make you feel good and reinforces your knowledge of basic skills. I used to coach tennis and it really helped my game at the time. You got to see all the mistakes so you could then try not to make them as well.

When you said, "I teach for food" it reminded me of a thread that ran here over the early winter. The basis of it was that if you accept gas or food or lodging when you take someone fishing and show them what to do you are acting as a guide............... The back and forth was long running on the topic.
