"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Few experiences can be as cathartic as a day spent fishing on the river. Life’s nagging problems can safely be left on the bank, leaving us with a time for relaxation, reflection, and the appreciation of the natural wonders hidden in our busy world. What it took me a while to realize, however, was that the purity of the experience lends itself to exposure to some of life’s most important lessons. Perhaps if we were more willing to open ourselves to the teachings of trout, far fewer problems would be waiting for us when we get back to shore.

True North Trout discusses tenacity, adaptability, humility, and gratitude ... lessons the river can teach us.
