I am a 67 year old active retiree. My wife Cindy and I wanted to learn about fly fishing with the full intention of taking up this sport. When we signed up for a tour with the owner I told him I have bad knees and specifically asked if we needed to rent special equipment. He told us we could wear sneakers and never mentioned we would be taking a strenuous hike to the fishing site.
We arrived for our fishing trip and met Wally, our guide. He insisted we needed to rent wading boots, but they were half size to big for both of us. We took them any way. The hike to the stream was very strenuous and my legs were wobbling when we finally reached the stream. We still had to hike over a 1/3 mile in the stream with a strong current and very rocky bottom. I could not keep my balance and ended sitting on the bank while Wally led my wife to the fishing site. I sat alone for 2 hours when the returned.
When we signed up for the trip I expected to learn something about fly fishing and have a chance to catch a fish. I never got to make a cast, nor did I learn anything about fly fishing. This was an expensive waste of a day for me.
