2 Fly and SEC Basketball Coaches

This past week was memorable on many levels. I guided May 5th and 6th for Casper's annual 2 Fly Foundation  Tournament.  The Foundation supports Wyoming charities as well as helping to preserve the habitat of the North Platte River. My guests caught lots of fish both days.

On Sunday, North Platte Lodge hosted 8 "biker" ladies for a day on the water.   In my boat were LSU womens' head basketball coach, Nikki Caldwell, and Tennessee assistant coach, Holly Warlick. They  are the co-founders of "Champions For a Cause Foundation" which supports the fight against breast cancer. The Foundation was started by Caldwell and Warlick while both were assistant coaches at TN under legendary coach Pat Summit. Nikki won national championships at TN both as a player and a coach. Nikki and Holly are both avid "Harley" riders and their "Crusin For a Cure", a six day ride from Rapid City to Las Vegas, raises funds for their Foundation.  This was the first time either had ever fly fished for trout. They were a hoot to have in my boat and yes, they caught fish!
