Hunting Fish With Flies

Recently I was asked to be part of project that plans to make a DVD on fly-fishing in Ireland and show off our beautiful environment. All the proceeds that come from the project will be donated to the disabled anglers of Ireland which is a great organisation.  As part of the project I was asked to write a short description on how I see fly-fishing today and what it means to me. 
We would love to hear what this wonderful sport means to you and if you have any ideas of what content you would like to see in the DVD as regards systems, setups, and methods in all aspects of fly-fishing and fly-tying, we would appreciate your input.

Here is my description on what fly-fishing means to me ;
Hunting fish with flies is more than just fly-fishing on rivers, lakes or the sea for whatever swims in the waters. It is an internalized obsession, a passion and a way of life for a person who seeks to understand the greater meaning of living and being alive. Spending countless hours on waters with a fly and rod a fly-fisher becomes emerged in a world of thought, aspiration, anticipation and self worthiness. The skill of performing the art of fly-fishing comes mostly from within, while it can be taught; it is the person who also looks to their inner drive and soul that really comes closest to mastering the catch of a fish with a fly.

The evolution fly-fishing has been enhanced by the modern developments in fishing tackle, fly tying and the ability to share information worldwide. However it is still the core essential approaches that underline the majority of our methodologies that have been around for centuries. It is these simplistic approaches to our modern systems and processes that we will be focusing on throughout this DVD, we hope to share with you our passion, our desire to learn and understand the art of hunting for fish with flies.....

You can follow our journey on our Facebook page and as I asked before if you have any ideas for the content on what you would like to see in the DVD just drop us a line and we would be delighted to involve as many people as possible. 
Thanks for reading
