“I became interested in fly fishing in my 30s and booked a casting lesson with Tailwaters.  I was initially intimidated walking in the shop, but my instructor welcomed me in, introduced himself, and put me at ease.  He walked me through the basics of fly fishing and offered encouragement and corrections as I made my first awkward casts.  By the end of my lesson, I was ready to dive in.  My instructor helped me select my first fly rod and reel, and a few days later I was out on the water fishing on my own and putting my lesson into practice.  A few more casting lessons later and I started reserving guided bass trips though the shop…then I signed up for one of the hosted trips to Mexico.  I was hooked.  Now, years later, my passion for fly fishing has only grown and Tailwaters continues to support me at each stage of my journey.  I’ve learned from Tailwaters, traveled with Tailwaters, made lasting friendships with the Tailwaters family, been supported as a guide through Tailwaters, and now call Tailwaters my work home. ” - Rebecca Milne
