Steve Brugger, owner of Lake Erie Ultimate Angler and proud father, sent us this series of photos of his four-year-old son, Lucas, catching his first trout on a dry fly. Lucas was casting an Elk-Hair Caddis on a 6-foot, 2-weight Superfine rod. The photos below capture the whole event. Clearly, Dad is quite excited for more exciting angling adventures to come!
