    ... I guess we can both die happy



    ... not much of a fisherman, but he showed an interest so we went out this weekend and he made some casts. A lot of blind casting, he missed a few fish on the strike, and finally he hooked what I thought was big pinfish. We can both die happy.

    Dear Jake and Shadow,

    thanks for the kind thoughts. It was a hoot. He had never fought a fish with a fly-rod, and got caught between stripping the flsh in, and it running enough to get to the reel. He finally stripped it in, with much anxiety about breaking it off. When it hit the deck, he breathed and was relieved as if he had just run 100 meters. Hilarious. He said it was all anxiety about letting ME down, because he knew how much I wanted him to get a fish.

    Great kid.

    that's awesome, tasty too. Maybe the boy will take a liken to it now that he's got one under the belt.
