Every summer I lose a rod overboard. Always by accident, no one intends for it to happen. This summer is already remarkable for the number of times it has happened. Three, I know hard to believe but true. On the upside two were retrieved intact and ready for another day even if a little soggy.
One of the most enjoyable parts of being a guide is being a part of peoples lives. For most you are only a part on one day on a vacation. Hopefully a great experience but not one that they plan to repeat. For others though this is at least an annul part of the family schedule. While we were all busy the number of years grew and the shared experiences multiplied.
Even though I specialize in families and beginners I get to spend time outdoors with many who have lots of experience. Frequently they use a different technique or system than I do. Over the years I have learned (well mostly) to watch and see what they do that is better than the way I would approach a situation.
