When I was a kid, I used to think that fly fishing involved waving the fly around in the air until the fish jumped out of the water to eat it. I was wrong. A couple weekends ago, I finally got to try it for real. And look, I caught a monster!
If you think fishermen go out of the river with a woven creel and a corncob pipe... well, you're probably right. But they have the gear jones too! Modern fly fishing kit is as teched-out as any other sport's.
