Another wonderful day and a different
guide putting us on fish. Isaak went above and beyond the call
of duty here. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the river
was very swift at this point. I was only up to my knees and had
a hard time holding my position. The trout had wrapped itself
around a root wad and was not about to budge. Isaak spent several
minutes working the line from around the tangle of branches. He
got it loose and the fight continued downstream. It was a nice
fish that was great not to lose. Way to go Isaak!
Every guide was different and they
all had interesting stories and experiences to share. Having a
different guide each day was a great opportunity to enjoy each
unique personality. Their experience levels ranged from over 20
years, to just a few. It didn't make much difference as far as
the fishing went, as they all were very competent and enthusiastic.
Their dedication and love for the sport showed. You can't fake
