We lined our fly rods, and started with a few dry flies. Des was very patient with us and he tried roll casting from the water’s edge. Des is three and it was difficult getting the mechanics just right. We missed a few with the dry flies and continued downstream. We were looking for an area with shade and we found a spot thirty yards down past the low water bridge near the race ways. Des found many rocks and with his mother’s help built walls and dams next to the water’s edge. I switch to a small jig and found the trout more interested in chasing the moving fly. I would get a set and call Des to help me bring in the trout. We caught two trout and released them back to the water.
