I recently received a great set of photos and a story from Jason Danley of Falcon’s Ledge, describing a fun gathering of a special group of Orvis associates. Lots of good stuff here, plus a video:
This past July, Orvis fly-fishing managers from around the country gathered at Orvis-Endorsed lodge Falcon’s Ledge in Utah, to enjoy three days of nonstop fishing adventure, great food, and friendship. Because of the diversity of waters that Falcon’s Ledge guests fish, managers were able to split up into pairs and traveled with eight guides to variety of rivers and streams in the area, never fishing the same river twice. Each day, two guide boats drifted the famed Green River, while other managers fished the Duchesne, Strawberry, Rock Creek, Lake Fork, and Yellowstone. Each evening, dinner was served early, so the managers could enjoy the evening hatch on the stillwaters surrounding the lodge and the nearby Strawberry River.
Kris Maurer, fly-fishing manager from the Nashville, Tennessee, store summed up the fishing like this: “The Green was epic to say the least. I’m not going to bore you with numbers and sizes. Imagine what your best day on the water would be like with consistently good-size fish on dries with great company, food, and an excellent oarsman. That was our day times two. It definitely ranks as one of the top ten days, I’ve ever had on the water.” Check out this video, which Kris shared, of a nice brown taken on the Strawberry river during the trip:
It’s hard to describe how much fun it is when you have 12 great fly-fishermen, from all over the country, fishing literally from first light to after dark with eight great guides, and sharing experiences and stories every evening while enjoying a soak in the hot tubtruly three days to remember.
