Joshie finally pestered me to teach him some tying when I had time to do it with him. He really enjoyed it.

There’s no denying that kid Gabe.

If you think he needs practice making flies, you could always have him practice making flies for me! I’ll take em. :D

I've caught many bass with that red and white spoon. The more beat up it got the better it was. I remember paddling up a small bayou with my dad in Louisiana, and him saying "the bass up here have never seen a hook".

Anyway, sorry for the interruption. Continue on with the flies.
