It's definitely a self awareness mag, it's out of Statecollege pa. actually. They mentioned ffp and tco in the article.




Does a rising trout make a noise if no one's on the stream to hear it?

Where is this Nantucket? I've heard stories about this place my whole life, there are some women there I'd like to meet.

Got a magazine in the mail today (free) called centered "life in balance". Was picking it up to throw it away when I noticed one of the titles on the front page. The zen of fly fishing by: Kathleen Moore, that got my attention. The article is about her taking a lesson in ff and casting. Just wanted to share with you all some of the quotes of a beginner.
" My senses were quietly overtaken by all that was around me; the sound of the water as it raced over and around the rocks; the feel of it, cool and energized as it swirled past my legs; the feel of the pressure of the water on my boots; the fresh, pine scented air that brushed my face; the flutter of the birds as they vied for a good spot in the trees; and the light that cast shadows and illuminated things previously hidden in the river".

She ends the article with this,
" The treasure of fly fishing is the absolute beauty of it - the combination of art and science that yields a million reasons to venture out and spend a day in a river".

I feel she summed things up very nicely.


All of that... And a couple swigs of Beam to really become one with the universe helps too.
