Determination and passion play a huge role in my life with my high level of intense angling. I dream of casting out a line each and every moment this life gives me. I guess you could say I count trout rather than sheep;as I lay my soul to sleep.
My days this week for Fly Fishing were scattered, yet I took full advantage. I was up at the crack of dawn Monday morning, full of cheer and excitement that my time on the water has come for me.
The weather here is hot; I still strive to excel.
I am so blessed to have new gear. Simms Headwater Waders I have been wanting and wishing for just had to wait for that right moment. Boots without laces, ((WHAT)) THAT ROCKS. All anglers know the feeling of new gear…. it’s a blessing 😄
Our water levels were spiked this weekend and raised to the highest levels we will see this summer here, to my understandings, and knowledge. Monday morning cfs levels started at 453. My last day out on the river cfs levels were at 350. Changing of waters means new, learning, understanding, patience and staying humble within oneself. I shall not let water levels kill my vibe…. I will maintain steady with flow, patience with myself; allow myself the movement and constant re-lining and tying on flies as need be.
I stayed into the evening, catching trout after trout, moving through waters gracefully with kindness and patience. I never gave up. I have taken on a task this day to tackle and I have succeeded. Many fish all their lives unknowing what really it is they are there for. I am there for me, to strengthen myself to release my inner beast; to be free.
Fish were eating differently today which I assumed would occur to the changing of water flow, there movement was in lower waters;wading for me was difficult as my size challenges me in the higher waters;safety first. I ended my Monday on my knees with gratitude and peace.
Wednesday finally came;a big day it is for me as I have been asked to film. I spent the day on the river with these local anglers and well known fisherman Eddie Robinson. What a pleasure filming for such a icon in my hood. Fly Fishing Field and Dreams I couldn’t be more thankful for all your support encouragement and love.
Tight lines friends until we meet again
Much love from Salt Lake City, Utah
I look forward to sharing my film with you at its release time.
Supports I am a big fan…
Follow my journey and let’s be as one.
