I wanted to put this story onto my website, as it was previously posted over at fisherous.com
If you have already read this...go on over to Brian's blog...where real trout pictures hang out...unlike here : )
The "CLEAN and CAST" ... Collecting over 15 sacks of garbage with a group of fellow conservationists (and friends).Enjoying the rest of the day fishing together! That is what I experienced the first time that I went to haul in garbage with the UFFC (Utah Fly Fishing Club) last year. What a great way to get some karma! There is nothing like doing a good deed. And when you are a fisherman, it feels really good to give back to the passion that gives you so much enjoyment. I am a Fly Fisher...plain and simple. I will always be. It is not something I do, it is who I am. Those who knew me before I started fly fishing three years ago, often question me with "Why and How"? It wasn't to be an escape, but rather somewhere that I felt that I belonged. And when I came across groups of people like the UFFC, it told me that I had found a very good thing.
