For me, fly fishing calms the inner beast. When I say fly fishing, I’m not talking about the act of catching fish; I’m talking about the Journey. Packing your bags, picking your flies, driving to the destination, staring at the fire, laughing with friends, listening to the water, watching the sky, imagining a take, saying goodbye…are all included in this journey. On Friday afternoon, I jumped in the truck and headed for the Missouri River. I calmed the inner beast. I enjoyed the journey. The moral to the story is find your fly fishing. The hobby that calms your inner beast. In my mind, it’s essential to health and happiness.
