Re: The Little Things
I wasn't born or nurtured into fly fishing. I reasoned my way into it, using a logical process. I wanted at least one sport that I could enjoy my whole life, or at least into advanced old age. So many sports become impractically demanding for people of middle age or earlier old age. That was long ago, when I was still a teenager. So I've stayed with it through the decades, regardless of fashion, fortune, or family.
When my friend Ralph Wahl, who was a pioneering, record-setting winter steelhead fly fisherman, could no longer wade rivers, he was able to extend his angling by fishing from boats. And fortunate is the real old-timer who has friends or family to serve as a support group.
Congratulations and keep on fishing, oh, Donnie Boy.
