Rather than fish a mountain stream, it has been suggested to try a privately stocked trout pound, especially for an introductory trip. A few advantages that fishing at a private stocked pond has are:
(1) No license required!
(2) Stocked trout will likely be larger than wild trout
(3) Easy access and casting

The primary intention of this trip is to give people an introduction to fly fishing with a reasonable chance of catching a trout. Catch-and-release fishing is not permitted here; you must keep what you catch, and they charge $3.95 per pound. Thus, I will plan to bring a large cooler (with ice) that can keep fish cool until we get back to Charlottesville.

The club only has 3 fishing rod sets (all are fly fishing). Given that some people may have their own fishing gear (even if it is non fly fishing), this trip can potentially support more than 4 people. Or, worst case scenario, people can share fishing equipment. I will join people from the waitlist, provided there is enough gear / drivers. As we are fishing a pond (close to the road), special gear (e.g. waders, sturdy shoes) is not necessary.

Montebello is a little over an hour away, so I will budget enough time to allow for a couple hours of fishing (some of that time going towards instruction).
