having never gone on a fish hunt with an experted guide, this for me was quite the highlight of a different kind of adventuring...not only did Jack patiently given learned lesson on how to read the water, track the fish,
and cast with more knowledge, but he put us in the holes where the fish were wandering about almost waiting aimlessly as if we were registered guests...

in the non rolled over image, Jack upon his Maverick's boat guiding stand, pushing us quietly into the position with carbon pole...I asked him if he was able to see better and the reply was a bit...but he also gave quite learned lesson on how to read the water and where the little buggers were hiding...

at one point in the journey, I could not cast with the flyfishing reel nor rod to save my life...Jack was high upon the stand and was tolerantly directing me where to cast...with an upwind cast and the fish nearly mooning us in procession, Jack kept at me patiently guiding on how to get better cast...as one would know about flyfishing, the devil is in the details of how you do several pulls and backcast to put the fly in the right locale...at that point I seemingly had the skill of a bull in a china shop, I sheepishly handed Jack my Sage rod, and with nary a back cast, he dropped the line right in the location it should have been as if the wind had changed direct and the fish were wearing baseball mitts for the catch...besides being dumbfounded, it was nearly spellbinding to watch a master craftsman at work...

in the rolled over image, Erik shows much better skill and manages to pull the first fish from the water... well done indeed...
