"... too many self-professed experts have made too much money complicating this sport. In reality, fly fishing is a lot simpler than many people think. You don't need to know the Latin names of every insect, nor do you need to make 70-foot casts, in order to enjoy yourself.
The true path to enjoying fly fishing lies in every angler's spirit."
