Take a Bow, Dads

  • By: Joe Healy

My father taught me to fish, so what a tremendous feeling to stand on the front lawn on a sunny June afternoon with my son, Teagan, and a 5-weight Redington Minnow outfit. With a little coaching from Dad, Teagan had developed a two-handed "Spey" stroke with the 8-foot rod...Hey, when you stand fewer than 40 inches, a two-handed, modified Spey cast is the only way to go!

To all the fly-fishing fathers out there, Happy Father's Day Weekend!
