    My 3 Yr Old grandbaby's first rainbow on a fly!
    This evening at about 5:30, my son and I decided to take Sage, my 3 year old grand daughter to the Platte river about 30 minutes from my house to do a little fly fishing. My son Jeremy (her daddy) has been working with her at home on the basics of fly casting and we figured it would be real special if today became the day she caught her first Rainbow.

    Nanna and Mommy went too, along with our 10 month old granson (Fisher).
    We didn't start until about 7 p.m., so we only had about 45 minutes to fish. Daddy was casting as we were in some bushes that Sage would not have been able to handle. Suddenly, as the "Turks Tarantula" pattern was drifting down stream, the water erupted and the fly disappeared. Daddy handed Sage the rod, and with Grandpa helping her hold on, Sage reeled in this beautiful Rainbow Trout. After this one, she reeled in two more for the evening before we called it quits and headed back to our place. When we got home, she said: "grandpa, let's have a fishing party tonight!" So we ordered out pizza and celebrated her big day on the Platte.

    She was soooo excited. So now it is official, I was there for my first grandchilds FIRST Rainbow trout on a fly!! I'm one happy / proud grandad.

    That's awesome, Alan. Congrats! From the look on her face, I think she's hooked.

    Looks like another fisherman (girl?) in the family. She's way too excited.

    Thanks gang.

    Yep, it was an exciting evening with Sage. She was soooo excited with each trout she brought in. She was so cute to watch and help as she reeled them in, pulling her little heart out to hold the rod as the trout tried to escape. Each one she brought in, she would point to the red on their side and then tell nanna and mommy "this is why they are named rainbow trout!" Then, before we released each one, she'd touch it and then say "bye bye trout". It was awesome.

    By the way, earlier in the day, she was helping nanna make a chocolate cake for a baby shower Ellen is throwing for our second daughter in law, Mari, who is due in 5 - 6 weeks. Sage was helping nanna stir the chocolate batter and so of course, when Ellen was done, Sage wanted to lick the bowl!! LOL
