This week we are hosting a fly fishing trip offering all details about fly fishing for coastal Sea trout. One of our guests (Fritz) is in the age of 86 years. Fritz joined us for a first time this April. Since then he was training his fly casting all summer long based on a workout plan I gave to him. Great to see he now shapes impressive loops and hits serious distance. You may check the last three pictures below.
I have seen this happen to a fair number of fly fishermen. Age doesn't keep one from entering a high level of fly fishing skills. I think this is truly fantastic, because it always provides an on going process of becoming better to us - unlike in many sports where one would hit the top quite early in young age.
I don't know how old I want to become. But I do know that studying fly fishing details and improving my ways to teach em is the most important part in my life which hopefully I will be doing until my last day. Watching this to be possible for many of us leaves a great feeling to me.
Right now I will teach fly tying for an hour and then we will chase Sea trout in the middle of a pretty tough wind today. Can't wait! Hopefully you can make time to fly fish either this week!?
Great week to all of you!
All my best
