Father daughter fly fishing trip
This past week I had the chance to fulfill my daughters wish and make good on a promise to take her fishing. And although the temperature hovered in the mid-30's, she still wanted to go for it, and boy did we!
Our objective for the afternoon was to get into a few lake run steelhead or drop back browns. Conditions proved to be a little difficult, especially when slush drifted past us all morning. But we prevailed and found a few willing fish to take a fly. Katie had a lot of fun fighting, landing, netting and releasing several nice brown trout before the cold got to her - a problem that was solved with a stop at the corner gas station for snacks!
All in all it was an amazing few hour of fishing with my daughter. I can't wait till next time!
