Fly fishing in many ways is an art form. Like many arts, the basics can be learned quickly but the refinement and personalization are a lifelong passion that manifests in increasing finesse and elegance. Watching a well-seasoned angler cast can be mesmerizing. The flow of the line and lure through the air, and the way that they lightly and effortlessly land on the water, is beautiful. This lightness leads to a very natural presentation of the lure and is key to the success of this fishing style.

Lest We Forget - Boat Ride

On June 25, 1950, North Korean troops pushed into South Korea. The ensuing three-year conflict pitted South Korea and the United States against North Korea and China. Often called the “Forgotten War” because it is overshadowed by World War II and the Vietnam War, this devastating mark on history "flattened" North Korea with bombings, killing up to 4 million people in both the North and South (although no official records are available). This heart-wrenching conflict never ended and still creates a volatile tension in global affairs.
