Maggie’s First Trout on Fly

APRIL 01, 2013

On Saturday Maggie and her husband, Chris, joined us for their first ever fly fishing adventure.  They had never cast a fly rod nor seen a trout fly.  The Norfork River offered up some good water conditions and it was a beautiful spring day for some fly fishing lessons.  Chris had watched some fly casting videos on YouTube and with just a little instruction from Bo he was hooked-up on his third cast.

After a nice river lunch Bo rigged the rods with a new fly he calls “Trout Candy” and both anglers got on some serious numbers.  At the end of the day Chris hooked up a beautiful Cutthroat Trout but we failed to get a good photo.  Regardless it was a good way to conclude Chris and Maggie’s first day of fly fishing.

Does Maggie look like she had any fun catching her first trout on fly?
