The Fly Fishermen's Creed

by Doc Trout


Here is a quote I found on the St. Croix web site the other day that I think should be the creed of all fly fishermen:

     "I solemnly swear to serve the legacy of all those who have fished before me. To view all road kill as potential fly-tying supplies. To ask not what the river can do for me, but what I can do for the river. To finish my backcast. To respect other fly fishermen and walk the bank softly. To make my vest or pack a shrine to all that is fly fishing. To learn enough Latin to know that Callibaetis is not a rare disease you get from eating bad celery."
