    WHAT MAKES FLY FISHING FUN FOR ME
    It's early in the morning and the valley is shrouded in a fog. It twists and rolls as the first early morning breeze stirs in the trees making the scene quite ethereal, almost otherworldly. Everything is covered with dew; like glimmering crystals the tiny droplets catch and scatter the shifting light turning blades of grass into kaleidoscopes reflecting a spectrum of color. The thick fog shrouds the landscape and all of nature is wrapped in a fine gray film like a soft moist blanket.

    " The sun was setting in a blaze of reds and golds as I stowed my gear at the end of a very wonderful day. I had spent an entire day completely cutoff from all the hustle and bustle of our modern society. No phone calls interrupted my day; I did not hear any news about some tragedy involving some terrorist, I did not need to try to please anyone except the trout, no politician assailed me with campaign promises, and I witnessed beauty that only God's creation can provide. I love the thrill of seeing a trout rise to my fly but what I love most about fly fishing is that it has the power to take me away from all that I find distressing about the modern world and helps to restore my perspective about what is truly important.

    Amen!

    Neil,
    That pretty well sums it up!

    Nice Brown, by the way. The Brown was icing on the cake, but, a very sweet icing!
