Hi Larry, my name is CJ and I'm 8 years old I started fly fishing when i was 6 and I tie my own flies instead of buying them. My dad says I'm really good at fly fishing and I do catch fish every time we go. But I still get frustrated cause i cant always cast perfect or catch as many fish as my dad. Any advice?

Just keep practicing and fish as often as possible. the great thing about fly casting is that you can get lots of practice in your back yard. you want to control the loop. don't worry about distance. that will come when you can control the loop.
best regards,

fly fishing

If you are a fly fisherman you know that not all days are like that . I am not as productive with fly rod as I am with spinning rod . I have been fly and spin fishing for 50 years . I find it harder to cover all the depths with a fly rod . when conditions are right it is a lot of fun .

I find it fantastic that kids like CJ are fishing and trying new techniques. Applause to his father for having him learn to cast and tie his own flies. We need more of this these days! At 59 yrs of age, I finally got the nerve to try fly fishing. Have spent countless hrs watching video and practicing casting at the local park. When not fishing, I Head to the local lake each weekend to practice the fly casting and casting monster GT poppers on heavy spinning equipment. If you do not have the opportunity to fish at a local lake, you still have the opportunity to improve and expand your fishing skills even in your backyard. Keep it up CJ and keep practicing all techniques, fly fishing, spin fishing, baitcasting, etc as am sure in the future you will use all of these. The main thing is to have fun and get outdoors!!
