Hi, thank you for the warm welcome and Anna says thanks too! Here is Anna's very first trout, she was about 3 at the time. A little brookie caught on the same set up, bobber and fly from a beaver pond high up. The big trout was caught from a lake on the west slope. She and I have caught lots of different species in between. The barbie rod only worked for about a week. She now has a nice little daiwa and Pflueger set up. LOL

Very cool! Taking kids fishing means I won`t necessarily do very well, but the kids smiles are at least as good as a trophy anyday. Thanx for sharing! Taking my son out tomorrow......

Right On Anna (and mom & dad)! Very nice Trout! My daughter caught her first less than a week after turning 3 (on a Mepps). She hasn't caught another yet, but still tries. I'm sure she'll get a few through the ice this winter...

Anyway, welcome to CF.com, Nice post!

There's nothing better than helping someone else catch a fish - ESPECIALLY a kid! Thanks for sharing that. I love that smile!

Your assessment really hit home fish fetish, I quit bringing my equipment after the second trip with Anna, especially if we are fishing from our kayak. It is funny that she has a LOT more patience than I do, she will throw the fly out and and tell me to "be patient daddy, the fish will come" I am ready to try another spot after 3 mins of no action LOL, the lessons we learn from our children are usually right on target!!
Once again thanks again everyone for the warm welcome, in my experience fisherman are usually good people!
