I've taken Howard's advice and set the comments for Google accounts and removed the Word Verification. We'll see how that works. The spammers only managed 6 since this morning.
Today was a practice day for Yuki out at the Trout Pond. I set him up with a fly box and a few olive Wooly Buggers and a couple Thin Mints to get him started.
Then I lent him my 6 wt Streamlight fly rod from LL Bean and a new 6x leader. I wanted him to get a comparison between his fly rod and mine. I also wanted him to practice casting. My plan was to work him from 4 or 5 hauls to a double haul cast that most of us use at the pond.
While I was flippering around the pond in the Float Tube Cumberland not catching anything, I watch how he progressed. I'd say that after the first three hours (9 to Noon) he got pretty comfortable with casting. I think I'm winning him over and he'll soon be a fly fisher extraordinaire.
So that was it at the Trout Pond today. He didn't catch anything, I didn't catch anything nor did any of the other guys out there with the exception of one guy that was fishing a size 20 nymph under an indicator. No, don't even ask.
We decided that the next foray into fishdom will be out at New Melones, but probably not until next week as it's supposed to rain for the next few days.
