It's already been a year since I decided to walk away from my desk job to become a full time Fly-Fishing Guide. The year has flown by as they all do, especially this summer. Walking away from my full time job was scary, but it was the best thing I have ever done, other than ask my wife to marry me. It's been super busy this summer with lots of time on the water and many fish to the net. But, it's not all about the fish. There have been friendships that have been created and existing friendships that have become even better. There is lots of time behind the windshield, time to think about things that may or may not be important. There are new fly pattern ideas that are born and new patterns to test. There are new things that I learn everyday. There are days when the catching is easy and there are days like today when the catching is almost nonexistent. There are many big fish that haunt me. Ones that never made it into the net, ones that we never saw, only felt the power of their tail.
Overall, it's been awesome and I still ask myself "I get paid to do this?" If you would like me to stand next to you, pointing out fish and helping you become a better angler, let me know. I am already packed and ready to go!! Thanks for being along for the ride.
