Other instructors include Bob Jacklin,Todd Lanning, Ed Emory, Ian Malepeai and Zack Payton. We began with two days mixing classroom time with outside casting in the rain. The students have become proficient with just about every cast you can think of, learned the hatches, knots, fundamentals of equipment and you name it. We’ve all had a really good time.
Today we actually got students on the water to fish. The day was really about how to hook and land fish. With the South Fork unfishable till runoff lets up, we were lucky to have access to some private ponds nearby. All I can say is that the fish were big and provided excellent practice for everyone. Shocking to us all was this massive cuttbow that Bill caught on his last cast of the day!
That about sum things up for now. We are so busy with this school that I probably won’t post again for a couple days. But it should be good as we are heading south to fish some not private water and on the last day sneaking into some spring creeks. Even though I wont’ be fishing I can hardly wait!
