Re: Corbin is coming a long
Yep. I learned bait fishing and was great at it. My uncles taught me a lot about reading the water and such, where fish like to hide. I don't know how they did it but they would locate fish and miss them and let me know where to cast and such.
I love fly fishing but want to allow him to make the choice as to what one he wants to do. I was brought up bait fishing, and was threading minnows and tying riggings at 7 years old. It got old to me when I was 16 and made the switch. I love it now, but need to go back to a little bait fishing to brush up on skills to pass down to my son.
Just hate having my hands get all nasty from worm dirt, waxworm guts, and minnow slime. Not to sound too much like a sissy.
I only fish nymphs, but might start going back to dries and streamers, in case he wants to learn them. I don't want to push my likes on him.
