Fishing experience at Sunrise Fly Shop: Once the boat has been launched and you are settled into your seat, all of the nervous energy that you have felt building up all morning disappears. As the anchor is pulled you slide into the leg locks and begin to pull line off of your reel. With just a couple of smooth strokes of the oars your guide has you gently sliding into the main current of the river. After a couple simple instructions from your guide, you lift your rod and begin your first cast of the day. You miss your mark on the first couple casts, but you shake off the rust, and after a couple pointers and a little encouragement your cast starts to come together. Just a couple hundred yards down the river your guide instructs you to switch over to the left side of the boat. Your guide asks you to put your fly about six inches from the bank, give it a subtle mend, and be ready. You raise your rod, feel it load behind you, and lay a perfect cast within just a few inches of the bank. Before you even have time to make your mend, it happens. The first brown trout of the day explodes on that purple fly and instinctively you set the hook. Click here for quick link country guide.
