I just got back from fishing with my son. I had bought him a fly fishing kit from purse.io with Bitcoin a little bit ago and he has been using it every time he has gone fishing lately. There is a spot up Provo Canyon that he has been catching a lot of trout with it and he wanted to show off his skills with it.

I have never been good at fishing and I rarely catch anything when I do go, but I bought some fishing gear a few days ago and was excited to use it. I didn't catch anything tonight, but I didn't really care. It was cool to see my son using the fly fishing stuff because I have never seen anyone do it up close.

He ended up catching three fish tonight. Two of them were pretty small, but he did catch a decent sized rainbow trout.

I am not sure how big it was because we didn't have anything to measure it with, so we laid it down by his pole for scale.

After he caught this one, we both got a few nibbles, but didn't catch anything else for the rest of the night. Next time, I should catch something though. I wasn't really prepared today because I didn't have any bait with me, so I was using a grub thingy on mine with a bobber. I had no clue what I was doing. I like to stick to worms when I go.

Me too.. I wasn't good fisherman always. In my childhood I caught small sizes of freshwater fishes never caught big sizes of fish like your son's caught. He has skills and interesting thing to do free time.

Ya, he is pretty good. Way better than I am, lol

Nice view and good way to pass time in quarantine..

We aren't quarantined here.

I fish for almost twenty years and it's one of my few passions. However rarely I have caught trout, and never using a fly. Fly fishing in my opinion is the creme de la creme for fishermen. Not everyone can do it properly, and it has some British class to it. I'm more into spinning and carp fishing. On June 2 the prohibition will end in here and can't wait to spend some time fishing. Nice catch he had. I guess if I'd catch a trout like that I woulf cook it.

There is a lot of trout fishing here in Utah. I think I am going to get a fly rod as well and have him teach me how to use it. He is really good at casting it and it is cool to watch.

Oh wow. Now that's fishing. In a previous life I was a fly fisher. Big time.

He needs to find a clear stick on ruler for his rod. You put it right above the grip and you can measure your fishy.

Every now and again I'd catch one I needed to measure. There's a thing. The 20/20 club. Over a 20" fish on a #20 or smaller bug. I used to tie down to #24. I might not be able to see a #24 hook now days...
