Tim Hepworth is known to many by the social media handle @timandwren, that he shares with his daughter, Wren. Tim and Wren, who at the time of recording is five years old, get out on the water together as often as they can. Wren has been fishing for years, and although she sometimes needs help with the finesse of setting the hook or making long casts, she is already a well-rounded angler. She’s a big fan of bugs, boats, and of course, brown trout. In this episode, I talk with Tim about his unexpected journey into fatherhood and what it means to him to spend so much quality time outside with his daughter. We also do a good deal of chatting about how to make the outdoors enjoyable for your own kids. At the end, Wren herself makes a surprise appearance to share some of her favorite parts of fly fishing.
