Jim Erskine shares his stories, passions, adventures and feelings experienced while being an avid fly-fisherman, husband and father.
Although he has been fishing all his life, the day his father-in-law placed that first fly rod into his hands, his life seemed too changed. But then again, all of life's priorities seem to change as you get older!
From "Amorous Adventures on Tim Pond:"
"Within the first two or three casts, I had hooked my first brook trout.
A seven-inch wonder that was absolutely gorgeous with spots, colors and feistiness I hadn't ever experienced. How could this tiny fish be so wonderful to catch? How could I get so much pleasure out of tricking a dumb fish in that a piece of deer hair was actually a bug and twitching the fly line made it move on the water? Regardless, with pun intended,
I was hooked."
