…more please.

No one talks about the itchy eyes or dripping noses, the grainy feeling of pollen sliding down the back of your throat, fly-fishing for smallmouth bass this time of year. It doesn’t feel sexy or stoic, it’s the part edited out of grip ‘n grins and zero2hero videos- casting, mending, stripping, watching- all on the verge of a sneeze.

Until you see the dark form behind the fly. Until you see the gills flare, the fish dragging the fly back to its lair. Until you set the hook.
