The other day, I had the pleasure of taking out Gracie Edwards, co-owner of Fayettechill in Arkansas. She had never had anyone teach her how to cast a fly rod and had not caught a fish in the last couple of years, despite having gone fishing a handful of times. With a couple of adjustments, she was casting like a champ and immediately broke her no-fish streak. What a blast! How rewarding to be a part of that moment.
As a newbie to the guide scene, I have been overwhelmed by the support and encouragement from both men and women, fishy and non fishy people. I am loving it!
