Fly Fishing Book Signing at Carmichael's Bookstore October 29
Carmichael's Bookstore at 2720 Frankfort Avenue welcomes Thomas Schrodt and Valerie Askren for a lecture and book signing on Wednesday, October 29 at 7:00pm. Their book is titled Fly Fishing Kentucky. They plan to conduct a fly-tying demonstration during the evening. The book makes an excellent addition to the arsenal of the skilled angler and is a good starting guide for the novice fly fisherman.
Fly Fishing More Than a Sport
People say that fly fishing is a sport that comes closer than any other to being an art. Learning to cast with perfect timing is an elegant action that provides a source of satisfaction even on a day without a catch. Attaining the skill to place a fly on the water with a natural movement and deceiving a fish into biting is the goal.
A glorious catch is the obvious reward. Robert Redford's eloquent narration of "A River Runs Through It" told the story of a family and the building of their relationships through a lifetime of fly fishing depicting the sport as a nearly spiritual experience. Likely the reason the fly fisherman becomes so devoted to his sport.
