Report:  
Spring Fly Fishing!!
Tough weather but, the fish were very cooperative.  With
three anglers including 2 first timers in a cold driving wind the
outlook was less than ideal.  This all changed in the first few
minutes on the river.  After some quick instruction on short
line nymph fishing, everyone started hooking and catching
fish, despite the wind.  We quickly lost count of the # of fish
hooked and landed but it was a lot.  After lunch the action
remained hot with Luther catching a 19 inch fish on the first
cast of the afternoon.  The wind finally died and the anglers
continued to hook and land big fish all afternoon.  A fun day
and a great way to introduce new anglers to the sport.

Testimonial:

Once again, you put us on big fish all day.  I am also very
impressed that you were able to put two first time fishermen
on so many fish in so much wind.  Amazing!  Please thank
Jake again on our behalf, he was also great.  I look forward to
getting out with you again soon.
