Leland is not quite ready for the fly rod. What's important at his age is something to make the end of the rod nervous. Like me he will graduate from crickets and bobbers to drys and droppers.

We had so much fun. Leland loves all things outdoors. The day included snakes, ticks, slugs, the four-wheeler, arrow head hunting, turkey, deer, a campfire, low country boil and watermelon. I'm a lucky boy.

That's awesome! Kudos to you.

My Dad wasn't much of a fisherman when I was growing up. I had an Uncle much like you who shared fishing with me. I hold him in high regard to this day for all he did for me. Leland will surely do the same. It may seem insignificant now but it's really not.
