In the end, the objective of our efforts is not really to pull fish from the water but instead to elevate the condition of the foster children with whom we have the privilege of serving – through the simple act of fly fishing the principles of preparation, patience, focus, perseverance, consistency, conservation and grace take on new purpose and each outing the possibility of a new adventure, where the reward is life skills and fond memories that otherwise may have slipped by just like that trout had we not taken a chance, picked up a rod and made that first cast.
