I figure I have a few years, tops, before my daughter can out fish me. Then I'll know how my dad feels!

Elia's grandparent's were kind enough to buy her this nice little fishing pole while they were visiting last week. This morning I decided to take Elia to the coffee shop for "steamer coffe" and I figured that I would take her out in the afternoon to do a little scouting for carp. Elia spotted me putting her fishing pole in the back of the FJ, and she was so excited we had to go right then! We went to the only place that I figured had a prayer of containing active carp. I left the flyrod in the car and tied a size 10 hares ear on to the end of Elia's little pole. The orange bobber is actually a strike indicator I use when fishing for salmon. I have no bait or worms or anything, so I stuck with a fly only I took a page out of Justin's book and dipped the fly in vanilla extract before tying it on the line! KB showed up and the three of us wandered around and we did spot 3 active fish. I had a heck of a time getting the fly to them with the Dora pole, and couldn't get a take. Too bad, Elia really wanted to catch something.
After we got home Kelly was talking to her mom on speakerphone with Elia and I heard Elia say "no, I didn't catch any fishies."
A little warm weather, and we will at least see more carp. Won't be long now...
