Therapy for the soul

Fly Fishing Utah

I went fishing last week and on the way home from an amazing day on the water I got to thinking how therapeutic fly fishing is for me.  I hadn’t been fishing very much over the past couple months do to how busy my work has been and with spring time here had felt a bit of fishing depression.  It may sound funny to say but I was a bit depressed because I hadn’t been fishing and I can honestly could tell that I wasn’t as upbeat and happy as I normally am.  Their is something about just being outdoors, fishing in a stream or on a lake, camping or hiking that soothes the soul.  Another thing I thought of was that fishing less changes my thought process and approach when I do get out.  I think more about what I am doing and I slow down and ponder how special those moments are to me.   I don’t like fishing less but I am learning to slow down and appreciate what I have in front of me.

Here are some pics from last week.
