we arranged a half day fly fishing trip for the whole family to kind of break up a ski vacation to park city, and it ended up taking the cake. my wife was pregnant in the 2nd trimester and the kids are 8 and 9--so pretty much anyone can go on this trip and have fun! justin, the owner and guide, could not have been more friendly, professional, or enthusiastic. he really got everyone excited and really taught you how to catch fish. he brought along a second guide, clarence, to help us out because we had young kids and he was great as well.
they picked us up from our hotel and a quick 15 minute drive had us out by the provo river in the mountains. they supplied all the fishing equipment, waders, and boots. after an absolutely beautiful 10 minute hike (including a fun river crossing) we settled in at a gorgeous spot and started fly fishing. this is something that takes a few minutes to learn and a lifetime to master. they were great about teaching and went into detail answering all the questions we had. i was fascinated with the different baits they used--and i was sure glad they were there to set it all up and detangle our lines whenever that happened. it just took out all the frustrating parts of fishing and allowed us to just enjoy the experience 100%. all of us got in the river--even my wife for a little while! it was so fun--it was zen-like tranquility and beauty punctuated by moments of excitement and delight when the fish hooked. we caught 3 brown trout and my 9 year old snagged a big rainbow trout by herself. everyone was totally stoked.
time flies when you're having fun because our day went by in the blink of an eye. we would've stayed out there until bedtime. cast, mend, set! awesome!
at this point we pretty much rate attractions according to what the kids like best. we went skiing, boarding, sleigh riding, dog sledding, etc. when i asked them what the funnest thing we did was on the trip, they yell "FLY FISHING!!" i couldn't agree more. SIX stars.
