Pete Brigg’s October Paragraph - Buddies

"I once read a quote about friendship. It went something like - "Two may talk together under the same roof for many years, yet never really meet; and then, others at first speak are old friends."

This is true of fly fishers; there is almost always an instant connection - you don’t have to work at it, it is a kind of natural fellowship. So much in fly fishing is about the people you meet along the way, sometimes it’s a casual acquaintance, sometimes it becomes a life-long journey – a companionship amongst like-minded souls, unselfish sharing, spiritual enrichment and lasting memories."
