I had the opportunity to spend yesterday at the Pleasanton Fly Show and a had a great time. Although I made it a long one day event leaving at 5:30 am and getting back home at 8:30 pm, I was glad I did it. My main agenda was to begin the process of creating a network of job opportunities for our Guide School graduates. I talked with a lot of great outfitters and lodge owners and learned a lot about the process for becoming an Alaska fly fishing guide. Everyone I met seemed genuinely interested in what we we were doing and in most cases it looks like there may be some possibilities in the future for creating the network we have dreamed of. Although I realize this will be an ongoing and longer term project, I was able to find what may be some opportunities this year. Exciting! It was also great to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones. Including these lovely ladies from Sisters on the Fly. My wife loves them.
