He's Hooked

Keeping the same train of thought as my last posting, Do you want to know the best way to convert someone from bait fishing to the way of the fly? Get a rod in their hand and let them catch a fish.

Bill from Muskoka Outdoors recently took up the fly rod and has posted about his first major fly fishing success. He has a priceless quote that I think does a great job of summing up the appeal of fly fishing for me:

“The cool thing about fly fishing (over regular fishing) is that you quickly ‘zone out’ everything around you except for the sound of the river, your line, and your target zone.”

It's called stress relief! Congratulations Bill!
