Connor sticks some trouts on his own

 The family went to 2nd creek last Monday. Connor has been wanting to catch a fish on his own...cast, set the hook, & reel in. He insisted on using his all-blue "stonefly" to begin with. Fish would come up and inspect it, but no takers. He decided to allow me to tie on a stone-hopper and things got interesting. He really did a great job casting in the narrow lanes between the willows. He soon connected with a scrappy bow! The only assistance was me telling him to lift the rod. He caught another with the same minimal level of assistance. The third fish he set the hook without prompting! He was almost as proud as his dad!
Connor and I are heading up again tomorrow to let him practice some more...
