Oh the shame...
Took the 14 YO out again to our secret lake for some early morning fishing. The boy hooked into 5 and landed 3, I struck out entirely. Not even a strike and we fished the same flies.
The young man wanted a midmorning snack so we beached and I took out "his" boat and "his" rod and made three circuits - nada. Went back and switched back to our original setups. The boy was not more than five minutes from shore when he had his third and last hookup for the day.
If it wasn't so paganistic I would have choked a chicken when I returned home. Still might, I need some hackle.
