Anglers of Honor at Lincoln Hills
This past Sunday we had a great group of participants all ready for fly fishing lessons and a chance to hit the river and ponds and land some big trout. Even better, or just as important, we are outside in the mountains surrounded by beautiful scenery. We started with instruction on the fundamentals of fly fishing. After that we put the waders on, pair up with the guides and head to the stream and ponds.
The conditions are challenging, the stream is high and fast, so we will fish the pools and eddy's. The ponds had lots of fish, the water is warm, so we will have to work hard to catch fish in both the stream and the pond. At lunchtime everyone headed up to the eco center deck for a great meal from Hardi at the Ranch at West 40 Restaurant, and a chance to swap fish stories. It's been a fun day for all. A big thanks to all who made this possible, all the great organizations, volunteers and participants involved.
