What you'll do
I meet guests on the property around 8 am and provide them with any gear they might need. A brief conversation usually follows to get acquainted and find out about their skill level of fly fishing. I ask what guests expectations are and assure them that i will do my best the meet them. If I have beginners, then I will do a simple casting instruction before getting in the river and go over all of the basic knowledge of fly fishing and casting. When guests are ready and comfortable, we will head to the river and begin our morning of fishing. Around lunchtime, I provide a stream side meal for my guests along with drinks and snacks. We normally reflect on the morning session and I find out what points my guests would like to improve upon. Then we will return to the river after lunch to continue fishing until 4 or 5, depending on the energy level of the guests. During the day I take several photos of my guests reflecting the lifestyle and hopefully some fish photos that my guests can save and share with their friends and family.
