Outfished By A Kid And Fishing With Cheap Rods
I now nearly exclusively fish with a fly rod and even as I get odd looks from the bass anglers cruising the river banks in their flat bottom boats, I continue to try the muddy waters for a cruising fin to take my fly. Unfortunately this trip I was limited to what I could bring and the fly outfit just couldn't make it, so when I got there I went to the only outdoor sports shop in the area and started my search for a fly rod and reel setup I could purchase and leave as a permanent fixture at my in-laws house.
Despite my efforts at fly fishing, it was my little boy who won. Its hard to beat a worm on the bottom in a muddy murky river. Besides the great looking bass he is holding to the right, he also caught a large catfish, a blugill, and a few more bass putting both myself and my father-in-laws meager catch's to shame. Yes, you can say I left a the river a proud dad. My boy out-fished me and he did it legitimately. Well done.... well done.
