    Default WHY NOT? - Readers cast (Jason Goad) - Nov 6, 2011

    WHY NOT?


    When the angler returned to the cabin, he was immediately asked, "Did you catch anything?"


    "Yes, I caught 5 rainbows," was his reply.


    "Where are they at?" was the next question.


    "Where they belong," was his answer.

    Jason,

    You've captured, EXACTLY, the way I feel.

    Cheers,

    It never ceases to amaze me how shocked people are when I tell them I don't keep fish. They look at me like I just said that marrying their cousin would be a good idea.

    Fishing is less expensive and more fun than going to the mental health clinic. Besides they told me they couldn't do any more for me.

    When people question me about why I fly fish or why I release all my fish, I simply reply "Sometimes it's not always about the destination, sometimes it's about the journey."

    That generally sends them away scratching their heads.

    I tell my wife that it is a lot like going window shopping at the mall. You look and feel 'stuff' all day long but don't buy anything.

    I'm still surprised at how many people still can't grasp the beauty of catch-and-release. Of course, most of them are not fly anglers.

    Story is short and very sweet. Thanks Jason.
