Going out with the kids

This is something that I should do more of.  All of us get caught up in our busy lives and often take time for ourselves.  I often go out alone to relax and to get away from it all.  At the same time, I miss out on the opportunity of taking my kids out with me.  On this trip, my wife and 2 of 3 kids went with me.  My eldest son was traveling the U.S. with his grandmother and will be able to do a trip with me, just me and him.  A late start and a short journey up the hills put us on a beautiful small lake I visited a few weeks ago.  While we were there, we caught two fish, the only action I noticed.  both fish were taken on the Hopper Juan of course!  We left soon after we arrived as the weather turned and the rain was fast approaching.  The littlest one was cold and tired and wanted to go home.  I could have stayed all day, but this was not about me.  What it was about was building memories.

Did you bring a jacket?
Look at that roll cast!
Strip, strip, strip!
It's not always about catching fish.

Not sure on this one!


  1. A very nice day with the kids.


  2. Looks like a fun day. I also wanted to say how helpful all your videos are. I have your vimeo page bookmarked and reference it often. All those videos are so well done and the flies are fantastic. Thanks again Juan.


  3. Juan,

    Cherish these moments, kids grow up way to fast. Next thing you know they are graduating high school and heading off to college and you wonder where the time went.
