Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I'm not a fishing sort person, I e. I don't want to sit all day and wait. I am interested in learning about fly fishing ( who knew right?). Do you have guides who will teach me at least how to start and the mechanics? How far in advance should I schedule and what time of year is best? What are your rates? Do you have a website? Can't find a link to it here. Thank you
