The question is often asked, "Why do you fly fish?" To me it's a little complicated. But, the first thing I've enjoyed of about fly fishing is that I get to travel and fish for as many species of fish in as many places as possible.
One of the benfits is to meet people with similar drive and ambition. I meet a lot of doctors, lawyers, engineers, and highly skilled professionals that I can tap into their insight. I also meet many people that just like to fish and have fun.
I just recently had a great time at Oktoberfisch where I met and made new friends. We enjoyed the fishing activities and friendly gatherings.
