The Spirituality of Fly Fishing

For many people fly fishing is a spiritual experience, and a new book by Jody Martin uses this characteristic to introduce beginners to the sport. The book, The Spirituality of Fly Fishing, is based on a class Martin developed for a men’s group at his church in California, and it provides a good outline and workbook for group or individual instruction. Covered topics include how-to information about gear and technique, recommended resources, fish biology and fly selection. However, the overall message is the ability of fly fishing to heal and connect us to the environment, other people, and to a “higher power.” The Spirituality of Fly Fishing contains quotes and writings from diverse faith traditions and has been endorsed by Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Casting for Recovery, Reel Recovery, and Joey’s Foundation.
