Here's my son's first fish, on his first cast, caught and landed completely on his own. The smile tells it all. Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on taking him fishing.

Great pics, Shawn. I'm glad the little fellow had some luck. Sounds like you've found the right place and technique.

Looks like your son had a great time But I wonder what the little guy is thinking????

Another john

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Not "one upping" here but you know how proud fathers are.
The oldfart in the picture is my Dad. Somehow a great fathers day gift both for and from each other.

The real bonus is I never knew the farm pond we were fishing had bass of that size in it. Time to dust off the warm water flies.
