Youth Fishing Competition

Hi All,
A while ago I was interviewed by Ginger Gorman on the ABC (Australian) Sunday radio about why we go flyfishing. The show was a tribute to her  farther who was a keen fly fisherman and was very ill at the time.
He has since passed on and Ginger has sent a box of her fathers flies out for me to give away. He purchased them while here in NZ and they are all new. About $150.00 worth and in a nice strong new flybox.
I think it would be great for a young angler setting out into flyfishing to get these as sort of a parting gift from an elderly angler to a new generation.
So If you are under 12 and beginning to flyfish add a post here about the things you have already enjoyed in learning to flyfishand about fly fishing.. Ill get Ginger Gorman to pick one...... a photo of you fishing would also be good..
I will also add in a number of flies as a second prize...
So get to it....
