It's the kind of event that creates incredible stories, strengthens relationships, and sometimes...legends are born. This year, Velocity Retail Group took 10 people up to the Navajo Dam on the San Juan River in Northern New Mexico to enjoy a fishing and team-building experience that would be like no other. This location in San Juan, New Mexico boasts of some of the best trout fishing in the nation.
Morning came early at Abe's Motel and Fly Shop but the breakfast burritos and coffee where at the ready, along with the preliminary trash-talk. Our crew shuffled into the fly shop to sign the waivers, buy licenses and the necessary gear, like"croakies" and sun screen, to keep our sunglasses on and the sunburn off. Soon after,our guides met us in front of Abe's with boats and gear in tow, ready to lead us to the spot where the trout practically jump in your boat.
Teamed up in pairs, we launched at Texas Hole near the Navajo Dam. The water was clear and the fish were biting. Our guides were exceptional! Experienced anglers, they lead us to all the hot spots and made pros out of rookies before the day was over. It was a great day for fishing but an even better day for being outdoors in a beautiful setting, fly-fishing, and spending time together as friends and teammates.
