2017 Academy: A success!
A second-year student, Logan Ball, sent us the following story from the 2017 Academy:
I had the most wonderful time at the academy. I made some great friends while I was there and learned so much! I was a second year student this year and being such I got to spend more time with the guides, they taught us a lot of things like how to inflate and set up rafts and drive boats (even though most of us already knew how to 😉). On our first day of fishing, the second year students got to raft down the river with some of the guides, it was a beautiful day, we caught tons of fish and got to learn how to row. It was amazing and probably my favorite day the whole time I was there!
Another one of my favorite stories was on our second day of fishing, that day I was fishing with [instructor] Chris Little and [student] Justin Dye and we were wading the river. We had been catching tons of fish all day, but it was getting later and we had to get going, so we cast one last time and Justin and I both got a fish on! We landed our fish at the same time and they were both beautiful 20 inch rainbows, it was amazing!
I would just like to thank everyone that made this academy possible, I had the most amazing time!
