Why We Fish

Sure, we like catching fish when we go out, but that is not why fishermen are drawn to the water.  We go to get away.  To turn off our phone and leave our hectic lives behind, if only for a few hours.  We go to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, standing among tall pines, Rocky Mountain peaks, and wild flowered meadows.  We go to enjoy the cool mountain water on a hot summer day.  We go for the adventure, to see new places that we've never been.  We go to enjoy time with our fishing buddies, where the most important thing discussed is if the fish are taking nymphs or emergers.  We go to fly fish, because we love it.

Fished the local creek again last night, and really took some time to enjoy the surroundings.  Slowing down to take in the blooming flowers and the mule deer.  Nice change of pace from everyday life, and it makes me so thankful for what I have.

Mule deer didn't even spook from me
