While I always expected my son's first fish to be a saltwater fish, it turned out to be a trout. We just returned from a secluded week in the North Carolina mountains. The weather was perfect and DSL worked well enough for me to keep up with my work. I do have a few interested marketing comments about the area up there, but this post is for my son's first fish. I held the rod and he reeled it in completely on his own!
