Fly-fishing is both a sport and art form. You are constantly trying to perfect a cast or select just the best fly to entice a trout, steelhead, or bonefish. The practice requirs keen knowledge of locale, insects, and season, and while weather conditions add complicating layers to the challenge. Fishing on clean, free-flowing waters is necessary to sustain fish and can be some of the best time spent in any environment.

"I am haunted by waters."
