But, it was his birthday...and this is the only thing he wanted to do. He could have spent the day with friends and hung out, but he chose me. So, we packed up and headed out. I had looked at the river reports the night before and I knew the challenge that we were facing, as they did another dam release. I thought that we might find some slower water along the banks to practice in anyway...so, I told him that we would give it our best shot. We had our gear lesson and put on our duds...got a few pictures and took the long walk to where I thought we would have our best chance of hooking into a fish. Ryan is a pretty athletically gifted kid and learns very fast. In fact, his casting was pretty darn good for a new student. He will show me up in no time! Haha.
