Great post. I love the pictures and the reflections. It seems the longer I fly fish I come to realize more and more that fly fishing is more than just the fish. My 3 sons and their families arranged a 5 day get together at a vacation house in the Driftless. Fly fishing with all my boys on a stream in the middle of a gorgeous "hollow" was an unforgettable experience. I think it was Henry David Thoreauthat said "Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."I know we all like to fish but at some time in our lives we realize it is more than just the fish. Prayers and well wishes for your friend.
