We’ve posted several times about the travels and skills of young angler Graeme Sharp, who is just 13 years old. We’ve showed him with a lovely steelhead, his first bonefish, a hard-to-handle Exuma bone he caught a year later, and an August 2012 trip to Alaska’s Copper River.
Yesterday, Graeme’s dad, John, sent us a bunch of pictures from the past year, including images from British Columbia’s Dean River and Mexico’s Ascension Bay. This is clearly a young angler who is going places.

Pretty darn awesome! When I was 13, I was thrilled just to catch bluegill from a pond with 50c balsa wood poppers. With the street cred you’ve built up catching those beautiful fish, Graeme, you’ve got a job waiting for you at our fly shop in Montana! Keep it up.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think I’d rather see photos of a 13 year old at a farm pond with a cane pole catching bluegill with crickets.
Trust me that if a farm pond was the order of the day, he’d spend his waking hours trying to catch blue gill with a cane pole, crickets and poppers. The addiction is to catching fish by any fair means. It’s all good.
Side note: Where can you get a hat like the blue one this beast is rocking in the main picture?

Nice catch Graeme!
