I love fly fishing.

When I began fly fishing as a boy at the age of twelve. I left behind the gear and the bait, which was fine during the summer and fall months but presented challenges during the winter and high waters of spring. But I pursued on in my purist commitment to be a fly fishermen.

I love the meditative feel of swinging a fly in a grand river. Something I seem to never get enough of. So I cast, mend, and step, swing and wait for the grab. Over and over again I do this and two step my way down the river.

A fly fishing adage "It all in the presentation and not the fly". Presentation is important, but that only applies when comparing one angler to the other. For the fly angler it is all about the fly.

So when I hear that the winter Steelhead are not biting swinging flies and that you need to nymph. I smile and tie on a fly that will motivate the Steelhead to move. It's all about motivation for both the fish and the fishermen.

What motivates you?
