Fly Fishing More Like Surfing?

June 5, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

OK, if fly fishing is not so much like golf (hey, the hole moves), then could it be like surfing? Scott Willoughby thinks so: “Surfing demands far more patience than you might expect, waiting for the right waves as you might wait for a fish to strike. You might spot a potential lunker now and again, and then it comes down to placement, just like casting, before you can set the hook. Then that sucker takes off like a tarpon, a wild animal that you still have to land, even play.” In the Denver Post.
