Guide Kevin Empey—of Circle Valley Anglers, in beautiful southern Utah—sent in these great pictures, along with the story behind them:

My wife and I have a five month old little girl, Avery, whom we took fly fishing for the first time today. It was a great time, as we fished a small pond and spotted numerous rainbow trout cruising the shallows. I tied on a size 16 Parachute Adams that the fish couldn’t resist. Avery had a great time being outside taking in all the sights and sounds. She wasn’t sure what to think about the fish though, but with a trout bum for a father, I’m not worried!

I’m sure we can expect to see Avery on our Women in Fly Fishing blog in the not-too-distant future.

It looks as if Avery has got the grip figured out already.
