About Me

  • About Kerry Pitt
    Biography
    I have been tying flies and fly fishing since August 01, 1969. My Dad bought me a fly tying kit and suggested I might want to try it out, though he never tied at the time. I was not that serious about it but I stayed with it as I grew up and I would say I did not take it that seriously until about 1980.
    I think I would keep tying even if I could no longer fish.
    I have suffered losses in my family, a Brother, a Son and a Sister, fly fishing has always been where I went to heal and find my feet again.
    In 2006 I started working to bring Project Healing Waters Canada into being with guidance from the American organization. This year I stepped down and decided to take some time for myself, though I do run a small group of Soldiers in a program here.
    I enjoy fly fishing and while catching fish is always great, the time on the water is important in and of itself. I always like to meet new tyers and fly fishers, I look forward to more participation here as well.

  • Signature
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

So it has been a few months, seem to go by way too fast!
I went to my Son's Graduation Ceremony the end of May, it was pretty cool to see him graduate from Grade 12. He plans to take another semester to catch a couple more courses he wants then a couple of years of Criminal Justice after which he intends to apply either to the Canadian Coast Guard or the RCMP. He would be good at both but as a Father I wish he would take up accounting, much safer. Of course I keep that thought to myself....

I miss my Kids. Someone, a friend told me I would get over the "Empty Nest" syndrome soon enough. I really hope I don't. I mean sure it hurts to miss them, but off all the things I have done in this world, being a Parent has been the best thing, the most enjoyable and rewarding thing, but it also came with its share of pain and hurt. I remember another friend telling us to stop having children because we were giving pregnancy a bad name. We were a High Risk pregnancy situation so things...

So it has been a while since I posted last, but I have to be in the right frame of mind to say anything anywhere.
Over the last couple of years I have been debating the relationship I had or have with God......sorry I do not like that word, it carries too many negative connotations for me but people refer to him as God, I think of "him" as an entity that is not He or She, does not adust all of our lives individually all of the time. I believe we have the freedom to create our own...

I have been ill for a year, one thing or another but the largest issue was an intestinal issue that started February last year and ended about December I think. Then I had fallout from that which will require surgery and the last two weeks I have had the cold from Hell. I am feeling better though and I have great hope for 2013.
I talk alot about being good to each other, about Humanity and relationships, but I do like fishing now and then LOL actually way more than that.
I have caught...

It is easier to write my own thoughts here than to speak them out Loud. My Girlfriend Judy gets ther out loud part, she has my heart she listens, she renders no judgement at all she knows how to listen to me and that is not easy, sometimes I never shut up but it does not seem to matter, I love her to pieces, she was sent to me to save me from myself I believe.
Someone asked about contributions to Project Healing Waters. The American folks can donate through their website they are Project...

    Not me, unless I am fishing very deep salt water. Never fish fresh with anything but flies.
