Fly Fishing 201 with Orvis.

Arriving in Seattle, I called the Orvis Bellevue store manager Reggie,and we chatted about me transferring up here. He mentioned that he was teaching a Fly Fishing 201 class and I was more than welcome to tag along and get to know him and the fishing manager, Leland Miyawaki. It worked out well and I like the people working a the store. There were lots of big stocked trout and when we arrived, they were rising and feeding aggressively. Reggie and I got a couple minutes of scouting (fishing) in before the students arrived. Only two guys showed up for the class, but they both learned a lot and improved for the 3 hours they were there. My student sat in the shade to drink his Diet Coke and watch me cast when I hooked into a nice fish. Glad I still know how to do it!
