Default Beginner's luck

Were you lucky enough the first time you went fishing? If so, you are better than me. Beginner's luck maybe not for me. No trout stroke my bait in my first fishing day. But I learned the lesson and got better result in the next try.

Can't remember that far back. LOL. But I've seen that with my kids. Once I was setting up a rod for one of my kids, cast it for them and was setting up a rod for the other child and no sooner had I done that, the first one is yelling he had a fish.

LOL, your son were lucky. He must be proud to catch the fish himself. At my first fishing experience, I didn't get trout taking my bait that soon, but I didn't go home with empty hands either.

I don't think I was lucky either (it was years and years ago). When my daughter went for the first time she caught many fish, no trout though!

It seems that fish like children. They may think that kids, being pure and honest, are really feeding them and would never caught them. Appearance can be deceptive. Just kidding.

I think it helped that the area we were fishing in was for kids only and it was regularly stocked with nice sized trout. Just big enough to make a kid happy.

I did not have the beginner's luck. It took me a month or two of learning and patience before I caught the first one before Christmas. It made my Christmas more memorable.
