Fly fishing is unique in that we form a bond with others out on the water, usually without saying a word. It’s not at all unusual for a perfect stranger to hand over the fly that’s hatching at the moment, and even give you a spare for your box. It’s a community of men and women, young and old, who are content to stand in the water and toss flies to the fish. Waiting for the bite is only half the fun. We are one with nature when we have flies on our wall and string in the water.
