Travis and Craig, my complements! One month prior to this Road Scholar course, I had never picked up a fly rod. As a result of the skills and knowledge base of the guides employed in this program, I managed to catch trout every day that we went out. The accommodations were average 2 -3 star hotels but the meals were most memorable. The cooking staff at the 4H facility managed to turn very average ingredients into the most excellent southern cuisine, with such items as "beans and greens" and "sweet potatoes au gratin". For a newbie like me who was trying to determine whether fly fishing is his road to fulfillment in retirement, this program was a tremendous value. If you are a newbie, I would highly recommend renting your fishing gear through the program office and I would bring your own walking stick to use in navigating some fast moving streams.
