I recently went fly fishing in a small creek—a creek that reminds me of home. With the drought we are experiencing in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains this year, this creek was more like a lightly dribbling stream, holding pools of all but stagnant water. Nonetheless, it was teeming with life. Its beauty temporarily allowed me to achieve my goal: transcend the daily grind—immerse myself in creation—vacate the ordinary.
A first for me, I caught a smallmouth bass out of a grassy mat—that is something usually reserved for largemouth and weedless lures.
I also caught a two-pound spotted bass that put up a great fight.
