Enjoying the Journey [Video]

I’ve had a rough week that included a health scare and some big changes for my career and financial situation. It’s been trying, and some time on my favorite river – the Green below Flaming Gorge Dam – was called for.

I hit the river with my good friend Jesse for a day of sporadic, tough, match-the-hatch fishing.

Halfway through the day, when we broke for lunch, the beauty of the Green River overwhelmed me, as it always does, and I realized I was enjoying the journey to the trout more than catching the fish. That day, that’s what I needed to take away from my time on the river to get the rest of my life in order.

Jesse and I shot some video while out on the Green, and I hope you enjoy it. And remember – enjoy the journey.
