Fished with Tim in early August. Just did a half day since I was on a family vacation. Floated the Snake River. I brought my 11 year old daughter along mainly for the scenery. She can spin cast but never tried fly-casting. I told Tim this and without even asking him, he brought a spinning rod for her. When we stopped to wade, she wasn't catching anything on the spinner but was just happy to be there. He decided (again without me asking) to rig up a fly rod and he taught her to cast and stayed by her side until she caught her first trout on the fly. Would definitely fish with him again.
