My thoughts Exactly!!!

Thank you guys a lot for putting on a great show. Had a blast today, and learned that my casting needs plenty of help.. LOL

Delta_dog, Thanks for the 1-on-1 fly tying demo, me and my buddy got a lot out of that, I think he is buying all the stuff he needs as I type this.

What a great event, can't think you guys enough for putting in the time to make this happen.

I am so thankful I will let someone else post the pic of Fox-Gap. He knows the one!!!

It was nice seeing everyone today.
I even caught fish down near the covered bridge.
I was able to catch browns w/ a BWO on my own hand tied dry fly leader, that was nice. And I also caught using a nymph I tied last night. Even thou it was snowing it didn't feel that cold at all.

I would also like to thank everyone for sharing their knowledge and patience with me and fellow newbies. From delta dog and his gear tips and fly tying to S Becker and his help with casting and everyone else thanks again, and I will definitely keep an eye out for the follow up newbie gathering..

It certainly was a good day!

I'd like to thank all the instructors - you guys did the excellent job I knew you would.

It was a day of surprises, and I certainly got more than my share of them!

Today reminded me what good friends I've met through PAFF. I hope everyone makes the kind of friends that I've met here. Good fishing buddies are the best kind of friends, and I've been blessed with some truely great ones.

Here's a brief slide show of the day - I think I got all the instructors except krayfish. He just moves too quick to get a picture of. If anyone has any pictures of the day that they'd like to add to the slideshow, just PM me, and I'll give you my email address to send them to.

Special thanks to UFMGuy for spending the morning showing us his incredible products. You answered the only question I had in like 10 seconds. Your "GPS Fishing Guide" for Garmin is one incredible tool for finding streams, and I highly recommend his products for Newbies and experienced fishermen alike. They can pay for themselves in just one trip in time and gas savings, and the smart phone versions are even more capable. Just amazing!

Thanks again to all that made this a fun and educational day!

H.A.

Excellent. Enjoyed the slides as well. Were most of the newcomers youngsters, or spread across the spectrum? I think it is great to welcome others to the sport with good instruction and appreciation of the natural world. Thanks to all that worked on this.

It was a fun day. I really enjoy working with others on casting. I am by no means great at it, but I can visually see when others need a tweek here and there. I wish you guys the best of luck with your season, and feel free to Pm me about anything or to fish.

Really was a great day because I was able to get a fly rod in my 5 year olds hand for the first time. I was surprisingly pleased with what he did and corrected his casts when I described what he was doing wrong. A 9fter might not have been the best rod to start him with. Lol Also, was able to end the day on olives up top and him reeling them in. Thanks again Ed for putting this together.

As always, a great collection of guys. Had fun and hopefully helped someone along the way. Hadn't fished in the snow in a very long time and forgot how much fun it was. Thanks for putting that together Ed. Josh enjoyed it so much that he wanted to know when the next one was. LOL.
