Young Lions

There are at least two -- were once three -- young lions fishing locally. One who has been fly-fishing only a couple of years seems to have the knack for catching big trout. One I ran into today catches trout where there aren't any! I had had a pretty good couple of hours by my standards, and he had landed about double what I had. If the rest of you young lions on this board are as good as these two, the trout are going to have sore mouths everywhere, and we old codgers are going to have a tough time catching any! Talked to him for a while, and had watched him a little while, too, and he seemed to be fishing the same way I do...except he's a lot better at it than I am.
The big-fish young lion and his dad showed me a large rising trout one evening when I bumped into them along a creek. They invited me to fish for it, but it was their fish. They smiled and told me they weren't fishing for that trout this year! Well, since I didn't find it nor would have found it myself, I don't think it's proper for me to even think about fishing for it either. I guess we'll hope it feeds in peace all season and grows some more.
Anyhow, with these young lions' eyes on things, I have hope that some fish and fisheries can survive for a while longer.
