When I was preparing this article and thinking about my first fly fishing experience, I was inspired by a quote by Mahatma Gandhi. "A country's society can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

My best friend, Andres Vidal, has been my biggest influence through my fly fishing learning process. One day while talking about fishing, he told me "When you feel the vibration of the fly rod for the first time, when you capture and land your first fish on a fly rod, Gandhi's words will become true."
