Sawhill Ponds Fly Fishing

We returned from our trip, Sawhill Ponds Fly Fishing, on Saturday, April 22 2017.

Amazing day! Regardless of the cold weather and the rain; students had so much fun. Michael ran a great session on fly tying. Students were engaged.  The sun came out, and then we were able to try some Tenkara at the pond. Several students caught little fish and they were able to bring them home as evidence. We look forward to our next fishing adventure!
