Perfect Moment Monday -- Fly Fishing

I have never tried fly-fishing, probably because I had never had or sought out the opportunity.

But on our recent vacation to beautiful, Park City, Utah, we had the opportunity to take a free one-hour fly-fishing class with one of the locals.

The weather was beautiful -- clear and warm. We were surrounded by mountains (as you can see from the photos).

We were given rods and shown how to cast it out with a rhythmic cadence. "Not too much wrist; moving your forearm up past your head to one o'clock." Over and over, it became somewhat of a mantra for my body... and I loved it!

In the photo above is me (the fisher-woman) and below it is my husband and one of my sons, R.

This, to me, was a Perfect Moment!

Oooh. I like the meditative nature of it. And, of course, the natural beauty.

Wish we'd been there!

Did you catch anything?

P.S. Nice wholly alive big boys!

Can feel the calm of the water and breezes of the West. Lovely.

How wonderful! I've been to Park City once - long ago during the winter time. It looks just as beautiful during the summer.
