I’m fortunate to have two loves that I am completely passionate about. Obviously, the game of golf is one of them. I’m firmly entrenched in the industry as I’m been employed at golf courses for most of the past 10 years. Not to mention that I love to play and write about the game that we love.
Then there’s fly fishing. I was an angler long before I was a golfer, and my sojourn into the world of fly fishing never took place until 2008. That’s a long story in itself how I got immersed in the world of leaky waders, tangled leaders, and beautiful Brook Trout. But the short version is that my dad was my fishing buddy. He passed away in 2004 and I lost all interest in fishing. Then on a trip to Erie, PA happened for my wife’s birthday. Every stream that we passed on NY’s I-90 West there were guys and gals in waders standing mid-stream. Yadda, yadda, yadda, I became interested in fishing again and a fly rod has been in my hands ever since. I write occasionally about that as well.
The mechanics of both activities closely tie into one another. When fly-casting, you have to be on-plane (something that I failed to mention in the video below is that I happen to cast on two-planes), you have to be connected, and tempo all matter. Say golfer’s, does this sound at all familiar?
Please check out the video below. Here\s to fairway and greens and tight loops. Cheers!
Until The Next Tee!!
