Fishing is important for everyone as a whole because I don’t think people realize the importance of our rivers and our waters. Fly fishing while standing in a river or a lake can really open a person’s eyes. I know it did for me.
“Fly fishing has made me feel a sense of belonging and a comforting sense of disconnect all at the same time.”
Fly fishing has been most beneficial to me as a stress reliever. Nothing makes a work day or work week melt away like an evening or a solid weekend spent on the water. You can make it as carefree or as serious as you want it to be.
Sometimes I just want to go fishing to have a laugh with some good friends and drink a couple of beer and that’s all it has to be. However, there are other times when I plan serious missions and go into things with my game face on and the determination to cover major ground and fish hard.
Fly fishing has made me feel a sense of belonging and a comforting sense of disconnect all at the same time. It’s a feeling that I hope never fades.”
