Fly Fishing and Camping to Soothe the Soul

Camping and fishing go together like, well, almost anything pleasant you can imagine. Combining camping and fishing does wonders for the human spirit. Enjoy this article from the perspective of one fishing enthusiast's viewpoint. Fly Fishing is Therapy for the Soul - A Perfect Camping Activity Article Contributed By Tammy Douglas Fly fishing is therapy for the soul. Let me share my favorite therapy session. The sound of the Green River rolling by is interrupted only by the swish of my line. I gently lay the dry fly on the surface, and through my polarized lenses stare with the concentration of a brain surgeon. My breathing becomes slow and shallow, and I can hear my heart beat increase in anticipation. Everything begins to move in slow motion as I wait for it..... And then it happens! In a milisecond the surface of the water moves. Instinctively, I give a quick flick of my rod. As the line tightens, the battle begins. Water droplets hit your face as you work the line, keeping the proper amount of tension. Finally, you see it glistening beneath the surface. Now the conversation begins. You plead.." Come on now Buddy....easy...eeeeasy. That's it. A little Closer." You point your rod upstream, and grab your net as if you were a wild west gunslinger fighting for your life. You did it! You remember to start breathing again, as a smile emerges. I have heard it said that a bad day of fishing is still better than a good day anywhere else. Nowhere is that more true than here on the Green River in Utah. Mother Nature is always providing a show, from the mule deer to bald eagles. Our favorite place to stay is at The Flaming Gorge Resort. We have always stayed in the campground, but they also have a motel and condo rentals. And, if you didn't catch your dinner, the restaurant has never disappointed! Just one place we have enjoyed Life's Perfect Moments. You can follow our adventures on our Facebook page. Photos contributed by Tammy Douglas
