The little guy in the photo is my youngest son Nolan. He follows me like a golden retriever. My oldest one likes to "help Daddy with hooks"
I did try something fun with him the other night. I sat down at my desk with him in my lap and opened all the drawers with feather and furs. I told him to pick out 2 or 3 materials to build a fly. It was really fun to see a 3 yr old get serious about his selections and then the smiles that followed as I tried to make it look good. Hopefully he will remember those times like I do and maybe he will find a love for tying flies.
