Is there anything better?

I think I am a workaholic. I hate being gone from work and come in, over the summer, (unpaid to check my labs etc.,) and fret away from work.

Fly fishing and tying flies helps me move from the virtual to real life. I get so deep into the rythmn of casting hours fly by. I have gotten up at 4 am to be on the water at sunrise. (This is a big deal as I am not a morning person.) I've fished 12 hours at a go, and am shocked at the quick pace time rushed past me. It seemed like I was only there a couple hours.

There is something so pure and elemental. And the challenge of casting to fish, with a lure made of fur and feathers, seeking to trick it into thinking it's a bug by slick wiggles of the fly line... it feeds the soul.

And Lou, my friend, you must come to Colorado. We must go up to the high country and let the rockies and the trout seduce you too
