Conditions 

Charleston R.I. Boulder Cabins
I was fortunate enough to spend a week in Charleston Rhode Island. At the beautiful Boulder Cabins, located on Quonochontaug salt pond. For the first Orvis, Striper school. Pete Kutzer, Orvis casting instructor, along with Aron Cascone , Constant Angler Sport fishing Charters. Put the event together. Invited me to assist with the guiding. Three anglers registered for the school to learn fundamentals of striper fishing, but mostly learn the art of fly fishing. Mitch and his son Kenny from Chicago had never fished at all. The third student Pamela from New Jersey had some beach fishing and surf experience. The anglers spent the day in class learning things needed to become successful with the sport of fly fishing. Each night the anglers would separate and go on a boat, to fish the warm hatch Ninigret salt Pond. The cinder worm hatch, something that not all anglers ever experience. Not all are successful. These fish can be very selective. The three students did the very well considering the weather on Monday and Tuesday night with cold and windy conditions. . All anglers had multiple hookups on each outing. They successfully landed stripers, on the fly rod, which is quite accomplished for a beginner.. Congratulations to Mitch and his son, Kenny. Patience and perseverance paid off of these two. They picked up fly casting up quickly. Pamela with more fishing experience. Was just enough to make everything come together for her quickly. She had good success with stripers on the flats, and from the boat. Instructions given by the Orvis casting instructor Peter Kutzer. I want to thank Orvis for the opportunity. Also Aron Cascone , Constant Angler Sport fishing Charters. I had a great time meeting new people and new friends. I'll be out again soon look for my report. Until then tight lines

. I will be out again soon Look for my report. Tight lines
