I agree with what you said completely. I must say that I was discouraged because of a shoulder problem and surgery last summer. I finally got back to do some fly fishing this week and must say that I have regained my passion again. It's really good to feel that excitement again.
Catching 4 trout helped but just being able to be in such a beautiful place and recharge the soul is why I love it.
