Merri-Mac dad, Jamey Burrow, (father of Betsy) helped me do some “scouting” for our Merri-Mac Father/Daughter retreat last Friday. We fished Curtis Creek in McDowell County and had good luck on a size 18 parachute adams and streamers. We were really surprised that fish were active on the surface this early in spring but it was fun to catch fish with dry flies!
We are really excited about our May 15-17 Father/Daughter excursions this year. Though both our kayaking and fishing trips are completely booked for the daughters, our Father/Son adventures Fly-fishing, Kayaking, and Mountain biking May 8-10 still have a few spaces. Also make note that dads will be initiated into their daughter’s tribe in a very relaxed evening ceremony with s’mores to follow!
