I have fished my home water for over half a century. Every time I go out I discover something new. Many think they are in search of trout when they go out. The trout are only a bonus.
There are so many things to see when you are on stream. The sun setting over a driftless hillside comes to mind. The smell of plum blossoms are better than any over priced perfume from Paris or Rome.
Of course a butter bellied brown can not hurt your adventure. But there is much more to see.
There are flowers to be smelled and photos of garden spiders to be taken along the way.
There are discoveries to be experienced. Your mind is to wander and wonder.
