First redfish on the fly

IMG_0001    This photo is of Madison MacDonald with his first redfish on the fly. He is a young man that is turning out to be a fine angler. We did some back country fishing in Ozello and had some good shots at some nice redfish and just got refusals,such is life with fly fishing sometimes. Anyone who has tried this game knows that the journey we take to get a fish to eat a bunch of feathers or some buck tail is a humbling experience. With anything in life we have to take these lessons as part our journey. Today was the day that a young angler was given one of the best gifts in fishing,the first red fish one a fly. Throughout our journey we all get bigger fish and better days but we never forget our first time,its the one that means the most!
