Hooking Generations on Fly Fishing!

Our long time friend David Weeks brought his grandson West to Nacoochee Bend yesterday to introduce him to fly fishing.  From the sound of David's report, I think we've successfully helped him bring another generation into the fold.  Thanks for the report, David, and we hope we'll see you two on the streams of north Georgia more often.


Attached are copies of photos of my grandson, West Weeks, catching his first
trout on a fly rod at Nacoochee Bend on November 1st.  The photo on the right with me was his first trout which was 16 inches.  The photo below was his largest at 23 inches.  Notice the smile on his face!!  In all, West caught and landed eleven trout
on his first day ranging from 16 inches to 23 inches.  What a memorable day
he had!  Chuck Head did an excellent job of coaching West in casting and
landing his fish.  West landed each fish by himself and we did not lose a
single fish which was quite an accomplishment.  Thank you for creating a
wonderful fishing experience at Nacoochee Bend.  Please let me know if you
use any of these photos on your website.

Tight lines,

David Weeks
