    I really wish that this could turn into a ten page thread. That's such a fantastic little story. Thanks so much for sharing it. Makes me wish I had some little guy to take fishing. I'm going to make a point of getting my youngest brother out fishing as soon as I can.

    This is a really cool post. Plus, I am kinda envious of your son because that Gecko rod is seriously fun! Bluegill slaying machine.

    Cheers to you sir! I have two of those rods and two little fishy chicks to go along with them. Well done.

    Cool. Bought a Gecko rod for my daughter a few years ago and they are great rods, very well designed for little hands. My daughter saw me building a rod with a feather inlay and asked me to build one, so my have a limited life span here.

    I have so many pictures in my head of my dad and my brother out fly fishing when we first started. Your son will have many also.

    Fantastic shots! Thanks for sharing. This is better than a day fishing.
