No matter the reason you started, the reason we continue to spend vast amounts of energy, time and money is only known to us personally. Escaping the hustle and bustle of the real world and being immersed in the act of fly fishing is an amazing experience. Once we begin this slippery voyage it is hard to go back. In the beginning simply just catching a fish, any fish, on the fly is rewarding. Then we begin to seek the big ones, and we want more fish! This is all natural, we are humans we always want more, bigger, faster, stronger, prettier etc.
