Kids are funny sometimes. Some of them pick up our hobbies and interests while others march to a different beat. My kids would be the latter…. at least so far. They love video games, dinosaurs, and math, but have yet to really catch much of an interest in fish. Yes…. yours truly hopes that changes!
On the other hand, Carp Whisperer has two budding brown liners that would bring a tear to any fly addicts eye. Both of these guys have a passion for being on the water, are quickly learning how to handle a fly rod, and have even started tying their own meat! I was lucky enough to have given them their first tying lesson, but they have spent many hours at the vise with dad since and are truly a talent in the making. This year for Christmas they each got their first fly rod and real and are now into waders as well.
It is pretty cool to watch. A few weeks ago, was a huge moment as B casted to, hooked, and landed his first sucker on the fly on his own! Way to go guys! Keep up the great work and we will see you on the stream!
