This was my first year and I will be volunteering going forward. I had great time with little and big brother Ty and Kevin. Although neither was able to hook up with a fish they kept at it and were the last one's off the water.

They were both a bit intimidated by the flyrod but they were also intrigued. We discussed lots of things including tides, food sources, migration, etc. Both were like sponges looking for more knowledge.

Watching them progress from never using a spin rod to being able to cast on their own by the end of the day was a real treat. What struck me most was how Ty would concentrate and try different things on his own. Some times we would get down low to the water watching his line with intensity and trying different ways to impart action to the lure.

A day well spent with a great bunch of folks.
