    Took a kid fishing

    Last week I worked out that I should know @mickyDuck.
    Little things added up in comments etc.
    And to be honest the NZ Hunting Fishing Outdoors community isn't that big.
    A few degrees of separation a bit less some places.

    In fact in some ways I wish we used our real names as it would make it a lot easier.

    But anyway I went to school with his older brothers wife who worked with my best mate and I spent time at his fathers place he had at Aotea Harbour.
    I was born in the South Island so keep you comments to yourself.

    We PMed each other last week and it was good to hear from him.
    I remembered fishing, camping, boating at Whanganui Bay with a mate his family and a couple times Micky D was with us.
    This would have been early 80s

    I thought he might enjoy it if I posted some photos from then.
    If micky doesn't enjoy them others will.Name:  1626577418408.jpg

    and I was hooked,well and truely.....the first time out,I hooked big rainbow and started to swear,Bob told me to tone it down and I couldnt work out why the two adults were looking at each other and laughing.....turns out they had been watching Ps n Qs all weekend to not corrupt the young fella.....or so my old man told me years afterwards.....
    happy happy times.erniec was first person I had ever seen use a nymph.....I bought my first fly rod after that trip and just kept going from there. hooked first trout from beach right at last minute before packing up to leave.....still havent found another place down here to fish the same way,just let sinking line out at stream mouth and let fly sit in current till trout takes it.
    happy times and it has been great to thank one of the fellas who planted the seeds that have helped to shape my life.

    From memory you also chucked your line out as I was motoring out from the stream mouth.
    A fish latched on straight away.
    Had to drag it out in case the guys fishing at stream mouth objected to us trolling in to close.
    Told you not to wind it in.
