Our family really enjoys fly fishing. My 2 sons, my wife and myself like to go whenever we have a free weekend together. We have a lot of fun, and it’s a great bonding experience for the whole family.
My youngest son was about to turn 15, so I asked him what he wanted for his birthday. He told me he wanted his own brand new fly fishing rod. He had been using an old hand me down rod that I gave him when I got myself a new one a few years ago.
I took this into consideration, knowing that it wasn’t going to be an inexpensive purchase. But over the last few years he remained committed to fly fishing with us, and had become pretty good at it. I didn’t see much of a reason not to do it for him.
I sat down and spoke with my wife about it to see what her opinion was on the situation. She agreed that she didn’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work out. He had been fly fishing right along with us since he was big enough to handle it.
She suggested I at least do some thorough research to make sure I was making the right decision in terms of which rod to get him. After a few hours of research and reading reviews one evening, I decided on the G. Loomis IMX-PRO Fly Rod from Trouts Fly Fishing.
When my son’s birthday rolled around, my wife and I were beyond excited to give it to him for his birthday. He was thrilled to receive it and couldn’t wait to take it fishing. He was so grateful for it, and it really showed in his face.
The following weekend we went on a day trip as a family to go fly fishing. We got my son’s new fly fishing rod all set up for him and he was ready to go. It was so easy for him to use and he did great. I gave it a try and was seriously impressed with the ease of the fishing rod.
Really, to just see the excitement on my son’s face when he used that fly fishing rod was priceless. I’m so happy with the purchase that I made. Now my other son who is turning 18 soon is asking for the same fishing rod, and I have no qualms about buying him one. I highly recommend Trouts Fly Fishing.
