Newest Post - introducing someone to fishing

Recommended Posts

A bit of a different post this time.   An “origin” story of a good friend and frequent fishing partner

I introduced Colin to my love of fishing some 30 years ago and in 2016 he joined our fly in fishing group

Reminded me of how awesome it is to introduce someone to the outdoors

Cheers

Good story, thanks for sharing. When I started fishing I was already married. Had to hold my reel upside down because I am left handed. No one told me you can switch handles. The in laws still laff I'm sure.

I’ve got a few friends like that that I feel like they could easily fall into this lifestyle given the opportunity. They absolutely love fishing when I take them, I just wish I could push them over that edge that makes them interested enough to start buying gear and really take it on.

Thanks!   That's funny. One of my cousins would only use a spin cast and did the flip over for the longest time.

For sure.  Well maybe this summer w limited opportunities for adventure tips them over to the dark side! I definitely think the fact that we were on the cusp of driving played a role.  Fishing and camping was a new reason to drive lol.  Also helped that my parents had the trailer and the boat on Balsam.   Thanks for the read.
