Week In Review

We said goodbye to one large group of guests to say hello to a larger group of old and new friends. We went from a couple of days of mostly spinning gear going out with guests to a bunch of handmade bamboo in the boats. Several guests caught firsts on the bamboo, and they still have more fishing to do. The spin fishing earlier in the week was excellent, and many anglers also succeeded in their first attempts at fly fishing. Jeremy, Tim, and Orland all had Grand Slams this week! Congratulations to them! We had several trip slams, also. An enjoyable week overall, with great fishing.
