In need of stream therapy!

As I make it through another work week and reflect back on the last week of stress and a job that I go to but certainly don't love, I realize how important my time on the water really is. I am now off for three days and am trying to pencil in a day or anytime i could  stand in my therapy chair and cast a line. I've explained to my wife and family that it isn't just about catching a fish or being away, it really is a cathartic experience and when my boots hit that water my stresses flow downstream and wash my mind clean from the day to day. I'm sure none of this falls on deaf ears and we all have our things that keep us from losing our grip on reality but like the river or stream this blog is another avenue to release to a group that "gets it". Thanks again for reading and maybe understanding that this fishing thing yet fun is a vital part of staying who we are and who we want to be and not that Demon that lives within and can only be contained by the cool flow of "Holy Water" through our legs.

  1. You hit the nail on the head by saying "it's not about catching fish, but about being on the water". I think once you realize that simple fact you can really start to truly enjoy fishing.
