“Fishing seems to be the most evocative of sports, which perhaps explains why throughout literature it has become a powerful and often used metaphor for life.”
“Fly fishing moments are often solitary and fleeting, but they are deeply and sometimes inexplicably compelling. Those who survive the trials of the neophyte — fatal casts, sodden waders and fishless days — to become fluent in the muted colors and dignified prose of fly fishing, know the magic it can work: a soul scrubbed clean of life's trivia, the experience of witnessing nature's subtle rhythms, the possibility of a perfect day.”
