As others have said, I love to be out enjoying nature. I love the chill in the morning, before the day heats up. I love the critters you see, the river otter that pokes up to get a better view of that creature on the bank waving a stick, the blue heron that flies up and lands not far away because you are watching the swing intently and quiet, or the sun beginning to peak over the mountain. Then there is the anticipation as the fly swings through the bucket where you have caught other steelhead. There is the surprise when your fly is grabbed in a spot that has not held a fish before. There is the adrenalin rush as your fly is crushed and the disappointment when the AJ, you know you should not have used, comes out of a B-run. It is all good. And, the casting is not only fun it gives you something the improve and pass on to a wife, daughter, son, grandson, or friend who is interested in what interests you.
