Life Choices

by Kayla Lockhart

The saying “fly fishing saves lives” has been spread across the angling community for a long time, but it resonates especially with those of us that have a passion for this sport.  Two and half years ago, I was a completely different person than I am today and I owe a lot of that to fly fishing. Back then I was unhappy with my life and was doing some major self-reflecting. I was working and making great money, but working 60+ hours a week. I was devoting some of the best years of my life to my job. I was in a dead end relationship, living in Minnesota and never traveling or experiencing anything new.  I was in a “safe” place and needed to make a major change.  I needed to create an environment where I would be happy.  So I broke up with my boyfriend, quit my job and decided to start a new hobby - fly fishing!

I have hunted and fished my whole life, but never fly fished before. I had been drawn to fly fishing growing up, I just never knew anyone personally that was into the sport.
