I’ve always enjoyed fishing. I fished every inch of the small New Hampshire town where I grew up, as well as surrounding areas that were within biking distance. When my friends began getting their driver’s licenses, I was incredibly excited because now all of the rivers and lakes around the state were within reach. It wasn’t about the freedom of the open road, but rather the exploration of unknown water. I’ve never gotten that bug out of my system, and today I’m taking a canoe and two fly rods and fishing a stretch of a river that will be new to me. And I’m excited like a little kid.
Here’s a picture of a friend of mine from last summer as we were fishing a clear New Hampshire river.
