Owen's First Day on the Water

Told my youngest (10) if he wanted to go on the fall Snake trip this year, he had to learn to cast first. This morning was his first time on the water with a two-hander. All in all not too shabby.

(tried to post a vid of him casting but not working)

Wait till you watch him with a chromer that jacks him and goes airborne. You think you had fond memories of youth, but an untouched load will rush your soul.
Kids + fishing= perfection. Fine young man there!

What I lack in skill --- I make up for with enthusiasm.

It's all good Sink Tip ... No worries on the video.

The thought of sharing your time with your son is a win win.

Thanks for sharing.
