Took my youngest on his first fly fishing trip today and I'm pleased to say that he caught one. We'd been blanking for a while and I change to a Minkie. Thought I'd give it a go as no one had put in the book that they had caught on one. Mostly Fritz. I got three and kept two and this is the one he caught.



He was most made up and wants to go back tomorrow.
