This week I give you a 10-step plan for getting a kid into fly fishing. These are proven methods based on my experience and that of others I’ve talked to in the course of researching a book called Family Friendly Fly Fishing that I’m working on. I’ve also added three additional tips for getting teenagers into fly fishing.
In the fly box items this week we talk about the old 10 o’clock to-2 o’clock casting technique, casting into the wind with big poppers and other bass flies, attaching a new fly line to backing that’s already on a reel using a loop, and the correct size sink tip fly line to buy and I go on a bit of a rant about “new school” vs. “old school” fly fishing.
