Even the professional fly-fishing guides get their lines caught in trees and let a few fish go, so don’t worry about how you look or how dirty you may get. No one starts out good at anything, but fly-fishing can be enjoyable for beginners, too.
The Zen feeling of walking in the river and the meditative motion of casting gave me a passion for fly-fishing. The adrenaline rush of setting my hook and catching a fish is a peak. The takeaway is that even beginner fisherwomen can enjoy the thrill of fishing.
So wherever I go, I like to take a small risk and try something new. We never know what we like until we try it! There’s a reason so many people love fly-fishing: the repetitive motion of casting and the solace of the river is as relaxing as any yoga class. Besides, you may even use a few muscles you never knew you had!
What have you tried lately that was surprising relaxing and enjoyable? What new things do you want to try but just haven’t gotten around to it?
I’d love to hear from you – it would be great to give readers new ideas and new adventures to strive for! Share in the Comments section or send me a note and a couple of pictures of you in action at Barbara@UnbridledFreedom.com
