Jack Heifferon and Dave Drake, it'd be awesome to do this together next time you're in town. Always been high on my list.

Plenty of space to learn and practice fly casting in a beautiful and easy access location. Plenty of club members to give suggestions or teach. Public facility. A great place to chill out while physically practicing a skill.. Can be Zen like.
