It is our last fly fishing outing of the season. The weather is overcast and cold, but everyone is dressed warm and anxious to fish. We started with some of the basics of fly fishing. Next comes the waders and gear. Each participant paired up with one of the guides and hit the river. The Craig Hospital participants will arrive shortly and will be fishing one of the ponds with patients and their family members. The fishing is challenging but we managed to land a few trout. It has been a great morning. We all headed up to the deck for a warm meal prepared by Jim & Nick's barbecue and exchanged fish stories.
A big thanks to all the guides, volunteers, participants, organizations, Jim & Nicks barbecue and all the wonderful people who made this a great outing.
