Hi Mike

Thank you very much for the photos, we enjoyed reliving our memories of our fly fishing day together. They are just great.

We wanted to thank you again for a wonderful day. I wasn''t that keen on fly fishing initially before I went on the trip and was only doing it to accompany my husband. However, I had a great day, rain, wind sun and all. I really enjoyed learning how to fly fish, and now understand why my husband used to get such a kick when he caught a fish on the fly rod. It is FABULOUS!!!

My husband also enjoyed the day immensely, learned a few new things about flies, and techniques and not to mention the woollybugger.

Thanks again, we''ll keep an eye on the website for products, and hopefully we''ll see you again one day.
