The creek is clear, the temperature cool with some clouds, and the pond is full of trout. We gathered at the eco-center deck for coffee and a light breakfast. Next, we broke up into three groups with some receiving basic fly fishing, instruction. We headed to the creek and the ponds with our guides. Everyone manages to put a trout or two in the net, and just as important, many are learning a new sport and having a great time.
After a morning of fishing, we all gathered on the deck for lunch and fish stories. It's been a great day of fishing, learning, and making new friends. A big thanks to all guides, volunteers, staff and everyone who made this a great outing.
