Fly casting lessons

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.

  9. How fun, maybe we could do some fly fishing lessons in the NC mountains - I'll barter a few yummy meals for a lesson or two for my photographer ........... deal? Hope you're having a wonderful time Susan, I'm looking forward to the day we can meet in person in NC!

  15. I hope you both are enjoying your summer in Montana and missing all of the storm excitement in Florida. Looks like right now it will miss us in Florida but bring rain to our mountains.

    Thinking of you.
