Fishing with Uncle Jim

Posted By:


I had heard fly fishing was fun and relaxing, so I gave it a go.

“This isn’t fun at all, people actually like to do this?”

It’s exactly what I thought about fly fishing that first afternoon. My line was upstream, downstream, caught in a tree, wrapped around my waders and now the hook was caught on the back of my shirt and I couldn’t reach it. I stumbled out of the stream and decided that fly fishing really doesn’t work.

A few days later I ran into my uncle Jim at a birthday party and was lamenting my experience. He just kind of shook his head and said, “It’s really easy, but there are a few tricks I can show you. What are you doing next Saturday..?”

Ha! I never knew trout fly fishing could be so much fun! The silly snags I ran into the week prior were ironed out in about 20 minutes with his guidance. I even caught a fish on my third cast! Of course then I realized I had to land it, but Jim helped and there it was, my first beautiful brown trout. It was an awesome experience with his help. Man, I haven’t smiled like that for quite some time.
