Fishing with my Sister

My family was here the last couple weeks. It was a great time. I don't get to see them often enough and it was good to spend some quality time with the parents and the little sister. I was able to make it out on the water with all three of them during their visit. With wildfires affecting West Riverside just east of Missoula, I headed out to Rock Creek with my sister. It was her second time fly fishing (and the first time since the late 90s). I thought she picked up on things pretty quickly and was casting with relative ease by the end of the day. No monsters were caught, it is Rock Creek after all, but it was a great day out on the water with my sister. I just wish I could have helped her catch a fish on the fly. Enjoy.

 P.S. Check out the Troutrageous T! Shirt appearance. It's nice.

Sir,
A great video...and love the music match-up especially Mr. Cash's intro piece. Looks like you took your sister to a more challenging section of Rock Creek than the area you took your parental units. Were you apprehensive of her fishing skills, i.e. that she'd out-fish you as she did way back when in British Columbia when you were initially bitten and then infected by the incurable Fly-Fishing Virus? So you took her to a place with more challenging terrain? Or, where you being nice to your parents by not taking them to a place where they'd easily fall in and die of extreme embarrassment?
