Spent a great couple of days with Joe and his 9 year old son Brooks. Brooks had tried a little Tenkara fishing near Mammoth, CA and a bit if smaller stream fishing in Utah, but this was his first trip on bigger water and in a drift boat. As you can see from the above photo he adapted to the Missouri River quite well. In fact by day 2 he was crushing it, as was his more experienced father. Their motto was: “attitude and effort”. We couldn’t agree more.
We’ve said it before, but spring is our favorite time of year to get young anglers out on the water. And fathers as well. Congrats on the results Joe and Brooks!
