TFO Couple Teaches the fly, Not the Reel

How did you first get into casting? Even better, when did you first pick up a fishing rod?

TFO pro staffers Wanda and Gary Taylor were highlighted in a recent article, talking about just how they found a passion for the sport and how that passion has grown over the past 33 years.

Here is an excerpt from the article, by Devin Golden, of the Daily Citizen.

“Fishing in all venues is my passion. It takes you to the most beautiful places in the world,” Wanda said, following with an explanation why she enjoys fly fishing over traditional fishing.

The cast is like a dance. I enjoy the casting part. Plus, when you hook a fish, you’re in immediate contact. I have my finger on the string, and we’re immediately connected. In the other types of fishing, everything is on a reel. If I caught a fish, I have it on a line and under my finger. I can feel it where it’s going. I’m immediately connected to it.”
