Its that time of year again! Time to break out the old rod and reel and head out to the creek on that first clear day. SMU OA Leaders Connor, Jeremy, and Devon helped some of our very own SMU students and alumni do just that. Bright and early Saturday morning class convened for an intro to the traditions of the noble sport of fly fishing. After conquering the mysteries of the Orvis, cinch and other knots an advance was made to sorority park on campus, for a crack at casting. Having mastered the iconic fly fisherman’s cast in record time we felt that a trip to White Rock Lake to put our skills into action was in order. White rock’s water was a little murky as usual but uncrowded and perfectly breezy. One lunch and an hour of casting later our day came to an end. The basics of fly fishing had been covered. The SMU OA is proud to announce yet another class of collegiate basic Fly Fishermen!
