Over the last couple years, while snowboarding at Brighton, I have been hearing more and more about fly fishing. Originally, I wasn’t that intrigued. I don’t enjoy traditional bait fishing, I’m not a seafood eater, and just the thought of trying to fit my large hand into a fish’s small throat to get my power bait–covered treble hook out of there was enough to make me sick. But the more fish stories I heard—and the bigger those trout got—the more I wanted to experience angling on the fly.
