A river runs through it!






Ok, I know that I am not the typical woman, but I've learned to embrace it! I have always wanted to learn how to fly fish. Steven and I went to a wilderness outfitters store and purchased some hip waders, and a fishing hat. Then we went to a pawn shop to buy an inexpensive fly pole so that I could begin pursuing my dream. I did practice a little bit in Colorado on the lake, but I knew I needed a river! Yesterday, Steven and I went to the Provo river near Heber. It was pretty hot yesterday, but I was so excited! I think that fly fishing is so much fun.......and hopefully I will acquire top notch skills. I did get my rhythm of casting down, but there is so much more I have to learn. I love standing in the middle of a river, feeling the water swirling around my feet, and just being out in the quiet, hearin the swishing of my line as I dry cast. Seriously euphoric! Anyways, I digress. I hope you enjoy the pics. Get out in nature this summer and try something new... you won't regret it!

i think i missed the digression, but otherwise, it is inspiring to see you out there, feeling the flow. I went to a casting clinic a few weeks ago and am itching to get into the water

She's a natural! I'm amazed at how quickly she learned the basics. And the hip waders...I mean...look at the hip waders! Her only regrets were that they didn't come in blue polka dots. Maybe we didn't go to the right outfitter?

Dude. These pics are awesome! I want to go fly fishing! Shoot, I'll just take regular fishing... I don't think I've ever really been besides the trout farm in pre-school! But really, why would you go fishing when you can go fly fishing and where those cool hip waders!?! Totally sweet.
