My fly fishing guide from last week Peter Bragg delivered the goods on the river. He took me from zero to hero in a half day and gave me the three things I asked for 1) the fundamentals of fly fishing 2) the secrets of the river 3) the stoke of the dance that is fly fishing. Peter was patient, encouraging, and a proven angler who loves being in the water.
