Re: US Youth Fly Fishing Team
All life forms compete or disappear. I'd just like to think fly fishing might be a place to stand and appreciate life. If I catch a fish, I went one up on him, or others on the stream.
If I go fishless, did I lose? For me fly fishing is contempletive, not competeitive. I think being out in nature saved my life, I wonder if the outcome would have been the same, standing next to a guy with a stop watch.
Be careful what you ask for, you may get it.
"Standing in a stream fishing isn't reality avoidance,
more like a shortcut to reality."
