Quote(s) of the Day: That was a great day! Just exactly what I wanted

Fishing Highlights:

What an amazing day! The fish were keyed in on the top of the water and we had a blast! Peter came to the day with a a specific type of fishing for the day. We spent the day focusing pocket water, skinny water and little riffles. Water that he would normally walk past and not fish. We did very well all day long working this style of water and Peter caught a lot of fish on dries. Overall the fishing was great and it was a great day spent with a great guy!

The fishing is fantastic.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
