I gave up fishing due life, craziness and many other reasons. My boys are now 11yo and after a trip to Mammoth/Yosemite they got me back into fishing, I found myself buying gear again (baitcasters) but I also dusted off my fly gear, found a ton of flies I had tied years ago and I'm heading to my local lake to fling some bass flies really soon.
It feels great to get back into fishing and even more when I have the best fishing buddies in the whole world.
Glad to be back.
