Q: “I fish the flats with my friend, who I love, but he is not a great fly-fisherman. I certainly want him to catch fish, so I give him the first chance to catch something. But often he fails to hook a fish while I sit there for an extended period, waiting for my turn. Do you have a suggestion on how to handle this delicate matter?”

A: I have been through these woods many times years ago and finally came to a satisfactory conclusion. My fishing partner and I agree before we start that each of us will stay on the front platform for half an hour. If a fish is caught sooner, the other gets a chance. A half-hour time frame is best since the tide won’t change that much.
