I have recently taken more notice of ordinary everyday things that "speak" to me in subtle ways that make me want to be out fly fishing. Some of the more recent things that made me pause to ponder fly fishing were in a selection of paint chips at the Home Depot. I was selecting paint colors from the Freshaire Choice paint display... and some of the color names just "spoke" to me...
|Rushing Stream, Winding River, Healing Waters, Naturalist Gray|
The last one in the bunch isn't directly connected to fly fishing per se, but I'm sure you can see why it caught my eye. Paint chips aren't the only things out there that daily remind me of the fact that I don't live in a rustic cabin perched on the bank of a perfect fishing stream... street names, clothing brand names, the salmon in the grocery store fresh seafood case (maybe that one isn't so subtle), and even the occasional Kia Rio (very subtle, requiring Spanish translation) all make me yearn for the stream.
Just wondering if anyone else out there is plagued by the same sort of affliction.
