Quote(s) of the Day: How have I been missing out on this the last 24 years!

Fishing Highlights:

Today I got to spend the day on the water with John and Hamilton AKA Hammer. This was Hammers first time fly fishing on a river, so after getting his cast down and how to set the hook, we landed a nice brown trout. I gave John a few suggestions on flies and technique and he was on his own. It seemed like every time I looked for John he was on a fish! Hammer and I had a lot of fun sight fishing to some big fish and we managed to get some of them to the net. The best part of the day was when John caught a Dragon fly, he went to cast and his flies never came down, it was like a little kite!

The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 60+ degrees and Crystal Clear.
