I have to say that shooting 60 ft. of line effortlessly and curve casting into a breeze is the least of what I learned. You both opened my eyes to the magic that happens when you’re sharing something you love with others. You taught us from your hearts and it’s an experience I’ll always treasure.
Rarely, in this ‘modern’ world, is anything more than it’s billed to be. Let me tell you that your school, if anything, far exceeds your reputation. I just wish we were ‘beginners’ again, so we could do it again!
You are excellent teachers. Your course is very well organized, and it is obvious that you have put a lot of thought into the methods that you use to teach. It was worth every penny and every minute of our time. We would recommend your course without hesitation to anyone who has any interest in fly-fishing.
It is not often that a lawyer is at a loss for words, but words simply cannot express to you my enjoyment and appreciation from my recent flyfishing experience with you. Your sensitive balance of professionalism, patience and instruction were matched only by the beauty of your effortless casts which we mortals can only aspire to. I genuinely felt that I was in the presence of greatness. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity of attending your school. You are both inspirations and treasures.
The flyfishing industry is blessed to have two people like yourselves who are willing to share your passion for the sport as well as your sincere concerns for stream conservation. I could not have asked for a more enlightening and rewarding beginning in flyfishing. The volume and wealth of information I gained over the weekend is immeasurable, and I look forward to spending additional time with you on your river in the future in hope of absorbing even more.
I just had to drop ya’ll a note and tell you how pleased I was with the recent school I attended. I don’t remember when I have had as much fun and been educated at the same time. Until the class I was intentionally avoiding flytying and fishing below the surface. I was saving them for later in life since I view flyfishing as a life-long pursuit toward goals that can never be fully realized, much like golf. Forget golf, now! What I need is a vice and a sinking-tip line! You guys have accelerated my pace and forced me ahead. Don’t ever change a thing about the school. Ya’ll have it down pat.
Mere words can’t express my heartfelt thanks to both of you for giving me an experience of a lifetime. I felt like the proverbial child the night before Christmas each night anticipating the next day and what I’d learn. One can sure tell you are true experts at teaching. For the first time in years of flyfishing I could understand and visualize what makes a good cast. Now all I have to do is train my muscle memory so I can do it! … Thanks again for teaching me something I’ll be able to use and apply the rest of my life.
