Default Re: Bad Weather Fishin'

I think alot of us are drawn to trout fishing because it is a good excuse to be out in the beauty of nature (particularly these mountains). And there are so many ways to expand and hone this beautiful form of killing time. I am not the first to say it, Middleton said it best to my thinking, but the short time we are fighting a wild trout we are again pulled into the wild beauty of the place, we briefly become a part of it. The moments we admire our catch are the pot of gold in the beauty of the trout. It's not as profound a feeling as it was originally (back then I was just flat amazed and perplexed when I caught a fish!) but it is still magic. Must be something of what an addict feels, though we are much the better for our experience!
