Finally, I went fly fishing for the first time.
I’d never caught a fish before, despite having fished on multiple occasions, and had become convinced that fishing was simply a huge hoax. No one actually caught anything, I figured — they just pre-hooked a fish to their line, pretended to struggle, and drew it from the water with convincing gusto. However, my Utah guide assured me I was wrong. “Everyone catches something,” he said. “Don’t worry.”
