Re: The Compleat Angler Film
Davo, I couldn't have said it better. Helping someone exceed their perceived limitations,
is as fulfilling a thing as one can do. Whether it's fishing, or inverted fractions.
Hooking a fatty ranks in there somewhere too.
But after 3 long months off the water (in the city), I know it's the environment that matters most to me.
Last night, I watched some fish for an hour or so, didn't even feel the need to catch them.
Just savored the stream sounds, rises, birds drinking/bathing before bed, and clean air.
Spring is coming, and all the critters know it, including me.
I should say, there is some satisfaction in adding yet another fly fishing season, to to those I've already fished.
And of course, there is the chance to further improve my own skills, or at least try.
"Standing in a stream fishing isn't reality avoidance,
more like a shortcut to reality."
