Rookie Anglers + Great Guides = Successful Fishing
Posted 18 July 2010, 12:56 am NDT
At first we thought that our newest guests would present us with a hard challenge. Teaching them to cast a fly, set the hook and play & land a fish proved to be all in a days work for our expert guides.

All have graduated from their lessons with honors. All have hooked fish and most have landed one or more. Not only have they hooked fish but I think that fishing on the Lower Eagle may have hooked them.

What a thrill it was for a our female anglers to land their first Atlantic Salmon. One lady landed a 12 pound Salmon that provided quite a bit of excitement because she had most of her fly line spooled at her feet when it struck. The quick thinking and fast reaction of her guide allowed her to land the fish.

This was quickly followed by another lady angler who was left trembling after a 45 minute struggle. I am proud to report that she landed the most beautiful 14 pound Salmon I have ever seen.

As you can imagine there was quite a celebration this evening when they returned to the Lodge. They are so proud of their catch and we are proud of our students. Everyone is eager to head back on the water tomorrow.
