What makes a good mentor? • Understanding your audience. • Having the patience to work through the problem, not adding to it. • Giving positive reinforcement even though the outcome may not be to your standard.

Posted up waiting for that tide change. • • Speaking of change, if you just had kids or are thinking about having kids and are skeptical that you wont be able to continue to fish, think again. Shoot a DM to my wife’s page @hookedonfamily or check out our YouTube channel and see how we continue to catch bonefish, tarpon and permit in the blazing hot Florida Keys with a screaming infant and a three year old. • • If we can do it, so can you.
Ill take a full day of laughter, stories and great personality’s over a day of intense fishing. This world is serious enough already, reach into that fly box, tie on a smile and enjoy the time out on the water. • 📸 cred goes to either of these goons @bostoninked @marcosmzzl
Release a fish, gain a memory.
Lindsays bonefish on the fly : • Screaming baby ✅ • Antagonizing toddler who wont leave baby alone ✅ • Cloud cover ✅ • 20+ bonefish at the boat ✅ • Precise cast......✅ • Bonefish crushes the fly ✅ • Giant lemon shark chases bonefish✅ • Husband runs over shark with boat ✅ • Baby still screaming ✅ • Bonefish landed on the fly ✅ • Everyone takes a breath and reflects ✅ • • Catching bonefish on the fly is no different than raising two kids. Team work and communication is paramount. Persistence and patience always pays off.

I gave Grayton my phone and said “if you see dad on the phone screen hit the white circle” I guess he’s got many more talents than we thought, wish he’d figure out how to pick up his legos..... • • • • #kidphotographer #keepemwet #takeakidfishing #flatsfishingfamily #bonefish #bonefishfly #maverickboats #maverickhpx #skinnywater #flyfishingfamily #saltwaterflyfishing #captainsforcleanwater #hookedonfamily
