This entry is for Dylan.
I'm 10 1/2 years old I have been learning the fly for the last few years.
This is the first year I can do almost everything by myself.
I like to fly fish because it makes me feel relaxed and its just fun.
Sometimes I fish for bluegill with my cousins. I enjoy seeing their faces when I have a big one. I also enjoy seeing them catching fish. It's fun to take the tackle and rod that I think Ill be able to catch a fish on and actually catch more than one.
It is fun to fish beside my mom because she gets exited when I have a fish or she has a fish on. Also because she doesn't have very much time to fish as much as we do.
When I'm on a river and I get a fish on and its big, I automatically know I need to keep my rod bent and set downstream. I also know when I have a rainbow on its easier for them to get on the top of the water as I bring them in.
The difference between a brown and a rainbow is, Browns are more tougher and are a good fight. rainbows spaz out sometimes jump and screw you up. A rainbow has a few dots and they have a purple line down the center of their body. Browns have big black dots and have a curled top lip and a big muscular body, they are yellow and light brown and sometimes have red dots.
Cutthroats are really pretty colors
When I'm fly fishing, I need to look for good drifts and places where fish could be, but sometimes I like to look for snakes and throw rocks.
Thanks for a chance to win a cool Rod and reel!
