One of the greatest pleasures a guide can experience is seeing the look of joy in a new fly-fisher’s face when they catch their first fly-caught trout. Today I had that pleasure.
I met up with a new client of mine, Louis, and fished the Natchaug River together. The mid-morning started off slow but as the water and air temperatures climbed, the action started to heat up. Fortunately for me, the fish were cooperative and there was a fantastic Quill Gordon spinner fall.
Congratulations Louis and welcome to the club- the crazy obsessed fly-fishing club- because, the look in your eye revealed that you are hooked !
