So much more to it friends.
For those who follow this blog know very well it's based pretty much on the simple side of fly fishing and life. I'm not a complicated person and I try to keep my ramblings the same. I have posted some photos here which show how I feel about life and angling.
While the focus of fishing is the fish we pursue, there is so much more to it. I believe one could fish and not catch anything and walk away fulfilled. I know I have.
A big river, take a tiny section toss a fly and be surprised. Or sit down and have a soda and just look.
A small fly shop. One could spend hours here, not shopping but talking. Amazing stories have been passed here.
Simple flies waiting to perhaps tell a story of success.
Camp life. A simple meal of "Rice-a-Roni", with time to talk of the days happenings.
New friends are made. They don't care if you fish bamboo, glass or graphite. Just come back again, and leave the wild apples alone.
One peak after another, each with a stream running down. Is there time to fish them.
Brook trout paradise. A scene like this will clear ones head of winters grip.
Maine has many treasures. This is one of the simplest as well as one of the finest. Giffords, Farmington, Maine.
