However, as any angler knows, conditions don't stay perfect for long. Without rain, run off, etc we know that the rivers will eventually be too low to fish. Oh yeah, & those wild fires that our friends in Colorado are fighting probably could do with some rain, too. After all, even the most dedicated angler would probably not be overly concerned with fishing conditions when their house is burning down. Please take a moment to think about the folks in Colorado (& other places) who have lost their homes, etc in these wild fires - wish them luck & say a prayer for them.
The NPR story was amusing in that it had a great quote from a fellow angler that was being interviewed while fishing the Fryingpan River. He said :
"You know, people pay so much freaking money to take meditation courses and stuff like that. I'm like, man, just go fish. Go spend a lot of money fishing instead." (Cameron Scott)
That about sums it all up. I might even make that quote my new personal motto!!
