  1. Dave and Steve,
    Here is to another successful season of 2 guys and a river. I am looking forward to what this season will bring.
    One of the most memorable days on the water for me was last fall. I was fishing with a good buddy of mine for King Salmon on the Salmon river in Pulaski NY. There was a group of us fishing, and at one point I had to stop and take in my surrounding’s. My buddy had invited his father and his uncle and a close older friend of theirs. I was with my son and 2 of his friends. I was walking up and down the bank making sure everyone was doing good and realized that we had 4 generations of fly fishers in our group, ageing from teenagers to late 60s. The 3 teenagers were all new to fly fishing, in fact it was the first time they gave it a try. I remember that evening during a great meal watching the boys listen intently to the older guys in the group tell amazing stories of trips taken 50 years ago on that same river. I knew the boys were hooked. We all caught fish that day, but a new tradition has been started with the booking of a trip on that same river with the same group of people this fall. For me, Its not always about the fish. Its being with great people and watching them unite with a common interest.

    1. So true, Glen, so true. Being with great people who are uniting around a common interest is quite satisfying. That’s a terrific experience you described … to have 4 generations on the river! I’m glad you’re going to make it a tradition.
