Thanks, Jake, for a grand day on the water. I loved that we caught some very nice trout—that big one was the largest I’ve caught on a fly in over 20 years of fly fishing—but it wasn’t just the fish....the whole day was great fun. I appreciate that you didn’t hold back on coaching an ‘old guy’ on casting and hook setting. Most of all, I enjoyed our time together, both on the ride up from Santa Fe and out on the river. I will tell my western fishing friends to be sure to go out with you when they get in your neighborhood. And count on me to hook up with you again the next time I get back to Santa Fe.
—Best, Tom (Rochester MN)
