Why We Fish

I cant tell you how many times I have been standing in a river and asked my self, "Whats the point?" I feel like I have to justify it to myself but in reality whats so bad about it? Some people will sit in side and play a computer game for hours, or chase a little white ball around on a golf course for hours, or sit on facebook for hours, which is all fine but there is something about being out on a remote stream in the middle of the woods trying to catch a fish.... Still it sounds silly! Let me try a different argument. Maybe just a break from society and from social pressures and a time where you can find peace of mind and look at God in His most pure creation. The outdoors. Seems thats where i would be if I where him. The outdoors is still a place that hasn't been completely tainted by the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I guess if you asked me why I fish I would have to say I just love it. To me it does not matter why. Jut Getting outside in any form this day and age is a win, so why not go fishing! And why not go fishing with Mountain Fly Anglers in Asheville North Carolina!

"Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way. A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self."
Ted Hughes

"The act of fishing - for fish, dreams or whatever magic is available - is enough. It transports us to a special world, and a state of mind, where we are free."
Fennel Hudson

"Sharing the fun of fishing turns strangers into friends in a few hours. Whether you sit with native fishermen in their boat and fish with nets and lines or dive under the sea with them - they will lead you to the haunts of the specimens you desire and you could not find yourself in safer and more enjoyable company."
Eugenie Clark

"Fishing provides time to think, and reason not to. If you have the virtue of patience, an hour or two of casting alone is plenty of time to review all you've learned about the grand themes of life. It's time enough to realize that every generalization stands opposed by a mosaic of exceptions, and that the biggest truths are few indeed."
Carl Safina

"Having a fishing rod in your hand is merely an excuse to explore out-of-sight depths and reveal mysteries that previously only existed in dreams."
Fennel Hudson

"Some go to church and think about fishing, others go fishing and think about God."
Tony Blake

"Most of the world is covered by water. A fisherman's job is simple: Pick out the best parts."
