Panfish on the fly with my best friend

Yesterday my son and I got to go fishing. I always enjoy this time because since his twin little sisters came along its tough for some just father son time. We knocked them dead. Corbin was using wax worms and I was using flies. I spent an hour or so tying up some pretty panfish wooly buggers. LOL only to find that the fish were so sluggish that the only fly they wanted was my glow in the dark friendship bracelet nymph. I could barely keep my fly in the water before he had another fish on. Nothing really nice, but just enjoyed having just some Daddy/Son time.

Here are some quotes from him from our trip:

"Dad, how come I'm the only one catching fish? You know Dad.....I think I'm the man now.."

"Daddy, you know I think people are doing it all wrong.", "How so buddy?", "Dad they go to Walmart and buy their fish, and we come over here and catch ours. I think more people should fish and kill their dinner, Dad?"

LOL never a dull moment and I am sure I am going to miss these days. Gotta love it!!

Pretty good day! At his age all he wants to do is catch something, don't matter how big as long as its a fish. Yeah you will miss those times when their real young. But all ages are good while their growing. Just keep him hunting and fishing with you and he'l always be part of your life.
