When I first started fly fishing I felt that I had to have a good deal of money, time to plan big trips to exotic destinations, and have a desire to chase the biggest fish ever.
I found out for me that that just didn't fit the bill. I was going after fish, in the rivers that everyone else fished. Because hey they caught big fish.
After trying this for a little while, I realized that it just wasn't my speed. There were other things that were on my list for experiencing.
