It’s summertime and the living is easy, right? Time to put the sign out that says Gone Fishing. How about fly fishing? That’s more your speed isn’t it? The beautiful rhythmic motion of the cast, back and forth, back and forth.

The trout stream glistening in the sunlight, the sweet burble of the water as it flows over your waders. Who cares if you catch any fish, it’s enough just be outside, unwinding in Mother Nature, your anxieties flowing downstream as each hour ticks by.

This hour, On Point: Can someone teach me how to fly fish, it sounds great.

-Wade Goodwyn
