A Week of Boys
Luke, Jack, Carson, Cooper, Chase & Crosby
This has been the season for young people getting into fly fishing and this week it was about the boys. First up was Luke and his grandfather drove him down from Massachusetts for a lesson. From here they continued on to one of the Pocono fishing clubs for a couple days. Then Jack and his dad came for a day of guided fishing and had a great day on Fishing Creek.
Next up was Carson, Cooper, Chase & Crosby from NYC. Their grandfather, grandmother, mom & dad, all came to watch the boys take a fly fishing lesson and the pond continued to be good to us with more bluegills and hybrid stripers for all. Good job, everyone!
Next week is starting out with a daughter, a young graduate art student in NYC, who has time this summer and wants to fish with her dad.
As terrible as Covid-19 is, it has given a lot of kids, parents, and grandparents more time together than ever before and with it the opportunity to do fun things together. We're glad that it is fly fishing for many of them!
Walking the Dog
And while we're on the subject of young guys fishing with their dads and granddads, check out these two kids as they demonstrate with their dad how to “walk the dog” when dry fly fishing. I tried to find out who their dad is, but can't find a name. We know he is doing the video for Red's Fly Shop, so thank you to Reds, MidCurrent, and the boys in the boat (dad too).
