Cast a vote please

Fishing has an ability to make anyone feel good about themselves – the achievement, after all, of catching a wild fish is entirely yours to cherish forever – and this extends to people from all walks of life and all situations.

I was prompted to think about this after my friend Rebecca posted a blog about a most worthy US charity, The Adaptive Fly Fishing Institute, that takes people out fly fishing to help them overcome the sort of hurdles that life throws at you sometimes – a subject extremely close to my heart.

A fishing buddy and a nice fish - a great combination

This year they want to take a group of wounded soldiers to Hawaii to fly fish but they need votes to secure funding. All it takes is a few seconds of your time and it could make all the difference to ten worthy individuals. This is the voting link: http://www.refresheverything.com/sendsoldiersfishing

Please read Rebecca’s excellent blog about the charity, vote and send this link to your friends and family.

Just remember how good it felt when you last hooked up on a nice fish, and then consider how good that would make someone less fortunate than yourself feel…
