Fly fishing program in the Lake District
The Lakes and rivers of the Lakes District seem to have a never-ending delivery of gifts. Salmon and trout wait for the sport fisherman, the one that comes to visit them, the one that respects them and knows them, and the one that returns them to their world of freedom; freedom that breathes and lives in these dream places.
... Because only in the forests, I can be alone without feeling alone, because the whisky that is drunk from an old cup of brass always taste better; and perhaps some day I could catch a siren...
