How to Get Started With Fly Fishing | The Art of Manliness

Flyfishing is an art that takes learning and practice. It is a lifestyle.

“To go fishing is the chance to wash one’s soul with pure air, with the rush of the brook, or with the shimmer of sun on blue water. It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature, charity toward tackle-makers, patience toward fish, a mockery of profits and egos, a quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have to decide a darned thing until next week. And it is discipline in the equality of men — for all men are equal before fish.” —Herbert Hoover, avid fly fishermen

You don’t get this standing shoulder to shoulder tangling lines around a five foot wide hole.
