“Long story short, we caught over 100 fish per rod. Most casts brought in a variety of five species of trophy fish all day long. For myself having fly-fished 30-plus years and my son, a 20-plus year fishing guide, who has fished more than me, it wasn’t only the best fishing that each of us has ever had, it was the best fishing that either of us have ever heard of anyone having.”
