A good time fishing
Students from North Fork Community Montessori School in Hotchkiss tied fishing flies under the guidance of Jeff Hatton and other anglers last week. Then on May 17, the students went to the ponds at Sunshine Mesa and fished with their own flies. The results were great. Among those who caught rainbow trout were fourth grader Sam Gibb and fifth grader Kaiya Firor. Gibb used the red hare’s ear fly he had tied, and Firor used her brown wooley bugger fly. Hatton and the Gunnison Gorge Anglers helped the kids reel in some large catches.
