It's pond fishing time sometime in the next few days for me and El Fisho Jr. A friend has a pond on their place and reported that not only is it full of water but that every cast was met by a catch last weekend. This is the kind of fishing young kids really need to do, to get them hooked on the sport.
I'm gonna hook Jr. up with a rig that I used to use in the 1970's and 1980's, a great Berkley fly rod. It's a great casting rod for beginners and is very forgiving. It'd be nice if he could catch a nice pond bass on a fly rod. And very exciting.
I might even see if I can talk Billy Ray into dragging his trailer down there to spend the night lakeside and have a small scale fishing camp. It'd be awful fun for Junior.
