JD caught his first dry fly fish today. He set the hook, played the fish and landed it. Period. The guy is a superstar. He used a micro fly rod to accomplish this feat. He could have caught dozens more had he listened to his dad yelling "pick up the rod Jimmy - pick up the rod!" Fish were eating the fly like crazy. The other kids were getting upset and asking us what we were using... they had size 1/0 hooks with worms and rattle traps in play... JD was casting a #20 gnat.

At first I was trying to help him, but he would have none or not much of that... I did guide him into a couple sunfish, but the one in the pic here was all him. He dapped the fly here and there... he even twitched it now and then.

My next project is to build him his own little "pond special" fly rod for dapping after these sunnies.

We ran into some good buddies from our neighborhood at the pond... both kids got their first fish on flies too - very cool!
