Kindred Spirits.......

When you meet people for the first time, we all get a sense of the person and how we would describe them in our minds.  It was pretty easy with Brad. It was like looking in the mirror. Brad, who came up from Des Moines, IA for the day, is an athlete, runner (a good one I might add-he competes on the national stage), father, husband, hunter, outdoor enthusiast and now a fly fisherman!

The week of this trip it had been hot, humid and down right nasty.  However, in the driftless area, that can change depending on what scenic bluff or valley you drop into.  The day Brad and I fished together it did just that.  While the the rest of the state of Iowa was sweating, Brad and I enjoyed the coolness surrounding the hidden valley.  Brad came to learn and soak up what he could before heading to Colorado to fly fish with his brother (who lives out there).  He picked it up fast!  In only one day, he learned how to rig, tie knots, cast, present, set and land trout!  It was a real pleasure fishing with a kindred spirit who enjoys everything there is about the outdoors.  I look forward to seeing him again!
