I've been feeling the pressure lately. I'm not a kid any more; I can't just fish all the time. My life goals have changed since I was five. I've wanted to be a train engineer, a meteorologist, and a professor of mineralogy. The last two would probably have been great professions and with my drive I would have made it there. But then fishing came along and I knew that I found what I am best at. So it became my goal to become a career fly fisherman. I'm going to do anything and everything in the field: fly tying, guiding, writing, photography... I know it won't make me rich but that doesn't matter. That doesn't mean I'll be fishing every day. I will however be doing fishing related things with fisherman and often in very fishy places. That means that there will almost always be material to be featured on this blog, and I will keep the nearly daily posts going as long a people keep reading.
I won't be able to become a career fly fisherman by staying in CT though. Next year, if all goes as planned, I am moving west. Montana, specifically. I should be working for an outfitter or fly shop, learning the waters and preparing for about 10 years of guiding. Then who knows what.
Will the name of this blog change when I leave Connecticut? No, it will not. I will be coming back here periodically. And besides, no other place I've been molded and formed into the angler that I am by fishing in Connecticut waters. This blog will continue, and its name will not change. I hope you all keep reading.
