Just got the photos back. I took another young lad out on Bald Eagle. We caught a load of nice sunnies, but the highlight for the young guy was when we started casting for bass and northerns with spinnerbaids on a weed flat.
The photo tells the tale. He also hooked a really, really nice northern...about 7 lb, but even with coaching, he momentarily dropped the rod tip when the fish got near the boat, and you all know the result of that. Never mind. As I said, the smile tells the tale:

If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
