I can't really remember how long ago it was...3 years, I think. It was a day spent searching out new blogs when I came upon one named Knitting Mania. When I found out that Pat and Chris were building their dream home in Montana, I knew I had to read further. Yes, it was within miles of where we spent each summer. Long story short, we have become great friends. Though we only see each other in the summer, we do correspond during the rest of the year.
So last night we were invited to dinner at their beautiful home. One small request was that the trout give them some fly fishing lessons. He was more than happy to teach his beloved sport of fly casting to Chris and Pat.
Chris actually caught on quite quickly.....
As did Pat.
The Trout left the rod behind so that they can practice, and in a couple of weeks, they will come over to our modest travel trailer for dinner and a walk down the stream.
