WHAT PEOPLE SAY
What a great time we had and I would recommend taking this Fly Fishing class to anyone. Dan & Pat were courteous and knowledgeable and treated us so well. After the lesson, we ate a wonderful meal, including Rainbow Trout that we caught, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Give it a try!
