  1. Hi guys! I’m catching up on my podcasts. It’s been busy for the past couple of weeks.

    I have taken on the joy of mentoring my wife on fly fishing. Having been a coach for many years, I remember a lesson one of my mentors taught me. “Don’t over coach!”
    We really started on the casting pond outside of the Orvis store in Manchester two summers ago. I have kept it simple with the goal of simply catching fish (isn’t that what it’s all about?). This past summer, she did that, and now she’s hooked. We are now enjoying our outings together even more now!

    Mentoring is not that hard. Keep things in perspective, and enjoy the adventure!

    • Busy, huh? We hear you! That’s great to hear that you’ve enjoyed teaching your wife to fly fish. Although I’ve joked that it was better for my youngest son to teach my wife, we love sharing outdoor experiences together. “Amen” to keeping it simple and making the goal to catch fish. And you’re right that it’s too easy to complicate things. Thanks as always, Roger, for replying!
