What a wonderful experience! I have always longed to catch a trout in a mountain stream and my dreams came true. I wish I had a chance to do a 2 day school but was unable to fit it into my schedule but this 1 day class covered the same material but just a little faster. Dave was such an interesting teacher. He has a gift for teaching this sport he loves dearly. This class covered everything to get me started. Dave was very patient with my skill level and made me feel proud of what I had accomplished at the end of the day. The location at Buckberry Lodge was wonderful. I can't wait to go back there for dinner.
