Fly Fishing and Harmony

From an article on fly fishing and harmony:

When I am fishing the cold water stream, I feel in harmony with nature. Of course, I know that the trout and I do not have such a peaceful relationship. Im either catching and releasing them or getting frustrated that they will not take my fly. But when I am waist deep in cold water, and I am tying a new fly on my line, and I am not moving, and I am not talking, and all I hear are the sounds of the bugs and the flowing river, then I feel at peace with all that is around me.

Sometimes a family of ducks swims by, first the mother, then 5 or 6 young ones with their baby feathers. I stop what I am doing, I watch them, and they swim by going about their business. I crave these moments of harmony, when I feel like a natural part of the world, when I fit in with the river, the deer and the ducks.

Rabbi E

It kind of bewilders me to see the modern angler standing amid stream bopping to his Ipod, whilst the sweet sounds of nature surround.

Sigh.
