TROUTBITTEN

This is Troutbitten. We are passionate and ambitious anglers committed to fishing . . . because we love it. Because it awakens our lives in a way that nothing else ever has, and because fishing is sometimes hard and sometimes it’s easy. In truth, we fish because we have to. Because, without cold water flowing around us for some time, our spirit dries up a bit. And while standing in a river facing upstream, the water moves through us and restores us. It fills us. It mends us. And then it washes away all of those things that just need to be washed away once in a while. Because working around a stream bend to which we’ve delivered a thousand casts a dozen times before forges a connection with our own past, creating vivid recall of partners who’ve shared the same water which no photograph can ever reproduce. Because we have memories deeper and richer with more emotion when our hands are wet and our legs are weak from hours spent hiking a water-filled path against the current. Our best friends are all fishermen. ┬áThis is Troutbitten.
