    Dude that is awesome!

    I love taking new people fishing. I think my experience is more in line with others tho. I took 3 newbies out this summer, and only one of them caught something!
    I do alot of prepping them for failure haha... ("man it'll be great just to be out here right?" "Even if we don't catch something it's beautiful out right?") Lol

    I think it's a combination of I'm not thattt great myself yet, and like someone else said: it's hard not to fish myself. I often think, "well if I catch one then at least we'll be on the board and they'll get to see a fish caught"

    I should bail on that mentality though and just stick by their side to "guide" them more

      When Splatek and I went on the hooch. It was my first time fishing the hooch. He caught about 20 trout. I only caught 5 but had fun. He had us fishing a fly called experience that he tied for us to fish. The trout could not resist it.

      I had never caught a brown and caught one that trip. Splatek is a great teacher.

        Haha. I've had people tell me that, but I take a different strategy, what I'll call the Spencer strategy: 100% optimism. I figure I will deal with disappointment after the fact, like, "Dang, we fished the heck outta that water and didn't even get a bite, I wonder how others are doing?" But I find the optimism works; it allays any "stress" or "worry" folks have about catching a fish and allows them to just have some fun. And don't get me wrong, when the going gets tough, I certainly remind them of the surroundings' beauty. We saw a bunch of does the other day and that about made the students' day as well.

          Just to tag on....Good job Steve!
          If anyone is interested in mentoring or just trying to get someone hooked up on their first trout, the DH is IDEAL! Early DH season will find lots of fish, good weather, and favorable conditions. Like small streams? Head to Smith Creek. Rather fish larger water? The Hooch is waiting.
          GATA!!

            My 11 yr old daughter caught her first three trout a couple weeks ago. Ear to ear smiles all day! She told me, "Dad, not to be punny but I'm hooked!"
