I have a beautiful home. And while this is a beautiful, serene sight...I took this picture while sobbing on the bank so I wouldn’t forget that moment. As you may know, I’m still new to fly fishing. On this day, It was raining, cold, and I had just done a full body dip in the 40 degree water. And as I was making my way out of the water, my line got hung in a tree and I lost my second fly in what amounted to 5 casts. I sat there for a long time feeling sorry for myself and ready to quit, but I took a deep breath, I got up, untangled my rod, and tried again. I didn’t catch anything, and didn’t even have a take all day, because it’s safe to say, I still have no idea what I’m doing...but I kept going. I know there will come a day when I laugh until I cry about that moment, and hopefully, I will be able to tell that story to encourage someone else that even when you’re freezing cold, soaking wet, and so forlorn that you’re cussing like a gangster rapper at a tree...just get up and try again. ✌🏻🎣 . . . . #flyfishing #flyfishthesmokies #flyfishingjunkie #flyfishingnation #troutbum #troutporn #rainbowtrout #girlswhoflyfish #girlswhofish #tennesseeflyfishing #flyfishtennessee #tightlines #thetugisthedrug #thecassettecompany #casse77e #cassettefishing #cassette women #greatsmokymountains #optoutside #outsideisfree #catchandrelease #nature #naturephotography #river #865life
