So I had a much needed day off and what better way to spend it then on the water. I fished a river that I hadn't fished before. I spotted a pool I wanted to try from a bridge, but when I got there, someone else was there. I figured I would at least say hi. His name Pete. We talked a minute and I told him that it was my first time on this river. He told me all the ins and outs, techniques that worked well, and even what flies he used. After 15 minutes of conversation, I headed down stream a little ways. 20 minutes later he found me and told me he was heading out if I wanted to move to his spot. It was refreshing to meet someone like that. That conversation meant a lot to me since I'm still learning. I hope I am as kind to others on the water as he was. That made my day.
