I this morning guided one of my children on a local river.
We caught some bass, panfish, and chubs, about 15 in all. Hooked a brown trout that fell off after a good battle. Trout were rising and jumping around noon. We saw only one other angler.
I enjoy fly fishing with my children. But, I now know myself well enough to bring only one fishing rod. The child fishes, and I guide. Otherwise, I’d be too focused on my own fishing.
We had a great time this morning. Making memories together.
