Fly fishing is considered a religion to some, pastime to others, and a hobby to many. Yet a growing number of anglers consider it a sport.  Kirk Deeter weighs in on semantics, and his changed perspective is thanks to the incredible story of a young man named Joey Maxim. “If we look at the true essence of sport, we realize that it’s often a means of escape from the rigors of ordinary life,” Deeter explains.  “At the core, sports are about reaching beyond boundaries.”  Via Fly Talk.
