      In the moment excitement right there, nothing wrong with that. He’ll figure out the rest soon enough.

      Thanks for sharing Pmacc!

        The joys and excitement of youthful success!

        I can still recall (most of!) the details of my first "monster bass"!
        A real whopper that tipped our home bathroom scales at a whopping 3 pounds after a 2 hour ride home in the trunk of granddad's '58 Chevy!
        As far as I was concerned, it was Mobey Dick! LOL!

          At that age, with a rainbow like that, I'd look a little excited, too.

            BTW; Near as I can tell it looks like he was using a pink Rooster Tail or similar…..

              Great catch! He looks excited and happy and that is a nice fish. I still remember my first big fish (3 or 4 pounds). Unfortunately it was a carp, not a nice rainbow like your grandson's. I was so excited I ran about a mile from the creek back to my grandmother's house to show her the big fish. May he have many more and may his doorknobs smell like fish.

                Nice fish! I get a little deranged myself when it comes to big trout.

                My first really good one, age 9, I caught in the crick about a half-mile downstream from the house. 14-inch brown. Just holding my rod and that fish, leaving my worm-can and tackle box on the crick bank, I ran all the way back up to the house, laughing all the way. The crick being one that ran through a heifer pasture, it was pure luck that I didn't step in any cow patties. Or maybe I did and never noticed.

                Just the first of many for your Grandson, I bet! Hope you have a nice visit this weekend.
