Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: There’s a first time for everything!: 3 stars

Being brand new to fly fishing, I started my day with Christine and Adam with some casting (and mending) instructions. Casting a fly rod for the first time might seem a little scary, but one of the many reasons why the Lower Sac is a great place to learn is because you don't have to worry as much about trees or rocks or random things to snag and lose flies on. In no time at all they mastered the Mighty Sac "water load" cast, plus they got the hang of mending too, so we were off to the races! While it's fairly "easy" (relatively speaking) to learn how to cast and mend in order to present your flies to the fish, FIGHTING the fish and LANDING them is a bit more challenging! But both Adam and Christine got it done, landing some really beautiful wild rainbows. I should also mention that Christine landed a small baby chinook salmon that we immediately threw back so that it could grow up and come back to lay eggs to feed the trout so we can catch more, ha ha! All in all, it was a great day! We solved all of the world's problems (or at least figured out what they were!), discussed a lot about fly fishing, and enjoyed sunny weather and perfect temps. I was so proud at how well they did casting and mending and doing their best to set the hook and fight those fish! It all paid off in the end! Good job, Christine and Adam... you earned it!
