I totally understand what you are saying. I think the approach you took was perfect. You can’t push things on them. They have to find their own path and discover things themselves. You can share your hobbies with them and maybe some will stick. If not, you are at least spending time together and can share some great memories. My father didn’t fly-fish or hunt and I took up both. But he did take me camping,
hiking, and spin fishing. Sometimes it skips a generation or two. He instilled that love of the outdoors and the desire to explore nature.

My son and I go camping and spend time together outdoors he just didn’t get the fishing bug like us. Maybe someday that will change if not he is going to be inheriting alot of stuff he has no use for. :blush:

[Minnesota Driftless Brook Trout by David Noll,
I landed this one Tuesday. It is easily the most colorful brook trout I have ever gotten.

@dpnoll David, That is an amazing brook trout !!! I have never seen one with the caudal fin (tail) so red. The blue rings around the red spots really stand out. Excellent catch. You ought to send that to a fishing magazine for publication. What fly did you catch him on?

I was using a tungsten bead red neck pheasant tail with a soft hackle and jig hook in a size 12. I get them from CJ’s Fly Box on Etsy.
