Fly fishing and ‘the moment’ (for real…….)

“The result was a fishing trip where you stop your pursuit of trout every few minutes to appreciate what you’ve submerged yourself in, and even then you still can’t quite grasp it.” Tom Chandler in a piece for FlyAddicts.com

CelticTreeOfLife04I once had the time (10 years), the shifts and the lack of commitments to fish two to four times a week. I purposely took M/Tu’s off and often hiked the rivers alone and often in sync with my surroundings. Family, work/’success’ took away those schedules and now I am more like Chandler’s statement; partly wanting to pinch myself that I am free to attempt to get in sync. My home water is in my mind. I go there often. I need to, at some point, in this AARP time frame go there, on a more regular basis, for real.

New Age Gibberish (spare the rod…)

Participants paid between $9,000 and $10,000 to attend the retreat.

Could have had a hell of a trip to mind altering locales, rod in hand.

Rosen’s Fly Fishing Blog (Bulgarian Site via Iantra.com)

Светулка (Firefly Pattern)

The Iantra site requires a little effort to search and translate beyond the visuals, but is worth the effort. Try your favorite translator like Google Translate.

There are many worthy fly fishing/tying sites worldwide. I have found several enjoyable sites from the East European countries. The visuals are usually enough, but with a little effort you can often figure out what the message is or the writer makes an effort to add the occasional English clue.Type in the sites URL and Google Translate will transform the site into your language…usually.
