On a regular basis I am asked just what the draw is exactly that pulls me to fly fishing, and in particular, dry fly fishing? At times I can bring to mind a particular example of an experience on the water, or that perfect rise that has stuck in my head. Or, I will refer to the challenge or chess-match that matching a hatch can often be. Quite often the person asking is a non-fisherman, so it stands to reason that the response they would more readily grasp or relate to is the romantic aspect of the experiences fly fishing can provide.
