T.F.M. Spotting - Jade's First Fish

While at the Midwest Fly Fishing Expo I had the opportunity to meet Mario Garza and his daughter Jade. Mario and I follow each other on Instagram and it was neat to put a handshake with someone who's photography stream I follow.

As Jade was getting ready to leave the show I handed her one of the giveaway Eagle Claw Featherlight fly rods that I had brought with me to use as prizes. Jade was excited and they promised to send a few photos when she caught her first fish.

Mario sent a couple photos this week which also included one of him repping for the T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest as well.

Mario wrote...  "Here is some photos of my daughter Jade learning to cast her Eagle Claw Featherlight glass fly rod for the first time. She caught her first fish on the fly shortly thereafter. She was pretty fired up!  It's gonna be a fun summer teaching her to fish with it!"

Nice work Jade.  Be sure to make your dad take you fly fishing a lot this summer.
