The sun is shining, the mountains are green and the creek is clear. We had a large group on Saturday, anxious to try their luck on the creek and pond. We had expert guides from the Anglers of Honor program. Most of the group were new to fly fishing and received instruction on casting, gear, and knots from the guides. We put the waders on and headed to the creek and pond with our guides. Family members and children were also on the pond trying their luck. We managed to put a few in the net, but more importantly everyone learned about fly fishing and had a great time.
At lunchtime, we gathered on the eco-center deck that overlooks the pond. One of our favorites, Jim N' Nick's BBQ, delivered a delicous meal for all to enjoy. It's been a wonderful, beautiful day. A huge thanks to all the guides, volunteers and everyone who helped make it a success.
