Many thanks to all those who organized and participated.
As a newby to the group, I was warmly welcomed and it was really great to meet up face-to-face and talk flies. During this time of Covid I felt comfortable meeting in the open air.
A special thanks to Misha, under whose careful supervision I caught my first brown trout. An important rite of passage in my Scottish family of origin.
I'm also new to the area and I really enjoyed being shown a new river to fish and given a guided tour of some of the best spots.
All in all it was the best of all fun days' out. More please!
Stay safe
June

Many thanks to Brook and everyone else who organized and attended!
 
I had a great day sharing a few techniques with new friends. We mostly
focused on casts that are much easier to do and see on moving water (like
water hauls, roll casts, and reach mends). Beautiful weather and a gorgeous
river with rising trout to fish to added to the experience.
 
As for feedback, maybe a map of the stretch we are fishing could be
collectively annotated by those who know it best according to current
conditions? "Swing tricos through the deeper water here." "Look for risers
along the banks here." "Nice riffles at here and here for #16 nymphs under
a hopper or beetle." That sort of thing.
 
But that's about all I have to suggest, which just shows how successful
this trip was.
 
Best,
Owen

No such thing as late for fishing, Doug. Just don't be late for dinner. ;-)
