Yin and Yang: Spin vs Fly
So many people take themselves, and fly fishing; to serious. My brother is a spin fisherman. I am a fly fisherman. This picture says a lot about the differences. We took this trip in February one cold day (20 F) in NY.
1. Is warmer
2. Is not wet
3. Caught the only thing the day we fished. (A korkers sole)
4. Did not get sick after this trip
I am :
1. Happy despite being much less comfortable.
This picture shows the discomfort a fly fisher will subject himself to. If your a glutton for punishment or prefer chess to checkers...you are probably a fly fisher too!
Even though I am wearing the same Korkers as the kind of the sole we are holding...I did not take one off to take a picture of it. He actually caught that! A Sole fish. I caught two ground trout that day. Damn bushes and trees!
Neither of us caught a fish but we did it each in our own way and that has made all the difference.
