Seriously, I didn't do much more than most of the instructors, I talked on the phone with Ed a few times and threw out some suggestions.

I thought the event went great, thanks to all of the instructors and especially the organizer, Ed.

I feel bad for skipping out on lunch and the afternoon activities to go fishing. My time has been short and I've been dying to get some real fishing in. But, as K-Bob pointed out during our trip, it's that passion for fishing that makes us who we are.

We did fish a stream about a half hour away from the event, only about 2 hours on stream. And as fate would have it, we did pretty poorly. Very low and clear, I think that did us in. Only 1 truly landed and photographed fish between us! We each had a long line release or two in addition to that.

Regret that I didn't take pics during the event. Here's a few from the fishing afterwards.

Pat - Our prediction came true for the Little Lehigh. Some nice fish were caught. At least two newbies caught their first fish on the fly.

One of those was martin0206's girlfriend. She'd never cast a fly rod before yesterday morning, but was throwing nice loops in about 5 minutes. Her fish was a big 'bow. I think martin0206 has the catch of a lifetime.

I would also like to thank the instructors for taking the time to bring some newbies into the sport.

Mcfinn, I hope you use the flies you gave me and that thermometer soon thank you!

Thanks to frequent tyer and BMarx for the surgeons knot and blood knot lessons.

HA (Ed), thanks for the casting instruction, you managed to get this lefty started enough that I was able to fish for a few hours on the little Lehigh.

Thanks to Pcray (Pat), I hope to check out a few of those remote brookie streams I run into in the fall.

Thanks to fishidiot (Dave) for the entomology lesson. It was intersting to see how much food was really available to the fish.

Looking forward to a season of learning and with a little luck, maybe I'll catch one of those little buggers.


Thanks to all!
Dennis

Thanks for all the help on Saturday guys. Thanks Heritage Angler- I did have to admit she was casting pretty well after a few minutes and did catch the nice bow compared to my total catch of zero. I had a lot of fun and now I think it will be a little easier to get out fishing since she is already looking forward to fishing valley this afternoon.
