TR with my son Zach, first trout on the fly!

Finally got my son out to dunk some bugs in Wisconsin. The season is winding down quick, but had to get at least one day on the water with my son Zach. I asked him earlier last week if he wanted to go fly fishing with the pops, he sounding excited to go, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity. We visited a friend in Lindstrom, MN, then headed over to the Willow River. He hooked into his first trout on the fly! So proud of him. We cooked some brats over the 1 burner for lunch and then headed back out. Great day to be out on the water.  There aren't too many things that I could compare to the joy one gets out of showing a young person the beauty of mother nature, especially when it's your own son.  I like being called Dad! Now for the rest of the story...
