It's the song of rippling water and the beauty of the stream, It's the flash of trout when feeding In the sinking sunlight's gleam.
That's anticipation.

It's the way you gauge your backcast and the way you drop your fly and it's how your line is tightened as the fly goes floating by.
That's fishing.

It's a symphony of music in tune with natures best.
A rhyme of song and motion that puts your cares to rest.
That's relaxation.

So take your flies and leaders, your reel and old fly rod and wade your favorite trout stream, Then you'll be close to God.

That's the truth.
