So I read, with great interest & amusement, an article recent'y published by the Harvard Mahoney Neuroscience Institute, in it's newsletter called "On The Brain" about how fly fishing can reduce stress.
It turns out (at least science is now learning) that fly fishing can break up the normal brain patterns of everyday life & that is healthy for the brain. In fact, it can be used as a relaxation technique & combat stress & the 'fish or flight' response we all instinctively have when facing stress in our daily lives. (So tell us something we don't know).
From the article.......
In other ways, fly-fishing has been compared to meditation, in that fly-fishers perform a simple, repeated task, often for hours on end."
So now you have even more scientific proof to use as an excuse to go fly fishing!!! To read the entire article, please click HERE.
