Young Nick Stafford is all smiles after landing his first Atlantic salmon . When I asked Joe how he was making out with “the young lad” Joe said that if anyone on the river deserved a salmon it was Nick. This novice angler showed great potential from the very start , he followed instruction to the tee and had a winning attitude .He also displayed a genuine concern for the health of the fish and our river , Nick is a conservationist straight from the heart . In my opinion many young teens could learn a lot from fly-fishing , it teaches a person to have patience and forces you to slow down a little in today’s faced paced world of electronic games etc.
Patience pays off for young Nick
