Actor and producer Michael Keaton talks about why fly fishing attracts creative people, the similarities between acting and fishing, and the value of focus.

Podcast Excerpt: “You know, fly fishing does that to some degree because it’s the crazy minutia. I’m sure this has happened to you, where you’ve been so locked in for hours and focused and locked and then you get, you step outside yourself and look at what you’re doing and it seems like a totally insane form of recreation. The big picture when you look at what you’re actually doing and the amount of hours and energy and focus and money you put into the ultimate goal, it seems like a totally insane pursuit. You know what I mean?”
