Quote(s) of the Day: A day of firsts!

Fishing Highlights:

There is not a better place to fly fish for the first time. The day gave us much better weather than the forecast called for. The morning bite was a little on the slow side, but we were able to swing a lot of fish into the net before lunch. The afternoon brought warmer temps and hatching bugs. Not only did John catch his first fish on a fly rod today, he was also able to catch fish on a dry fly as well.

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