Great report; and I echo Bill Bishop's words about taking your kids with you and introducing them to the sport. I started my step son fishing when he was 12 years old. He got a 15-pounder on his first outing casting a Rattle Trap on 12-pound spin gear. He was hooked! He got his first striper on fly on his 15th birthday, a 15-pounder - first time he picked up a fly rod. Not top-water; got it on a Whistler of all things. He was a "Natural"
He's loved fly-fishing ever since but living in Arizona we don't get to fish together often. Now I'm getting my grandson, Brad into them. The competition between baseball and fishing in intense though...
Keep it up and engage the sport on your own terms.
I'm a switch-hitter and enjoy catching stripers both up and down. That's why I have two stripping tubs in my skiff solely for me...
