I used to fly fish a bit, with hubby , who can do it much better than me. There's something really engageing about it. Every cast is diffeent from the one before and the feel of the pole, the sound of the line moving out and how you see a pool on the river, say , "I 'm going to lay my fly right there. I just know a trout is on the edge of that pool". Then, of course, I'd smack the flie down too hard and scare the trout away. But, I did catch some . Even caught a small salmon once.
You'll love it. Kind of expensive hobby 'cause you keep losing flies and leader and stuff
