Today while wading the flats, I learned a lot about fishing / sight fishing/ and the experiences around it. It is not just about catching fish but it’s really about soaking in the environment around you and being disconnected from everything. You get to see the world through a WHOLE different lenses.
Knox really made the wading trip very memorable because of his energy the whole time. He would do anything to help us land a fish, see the fishing railing or cruising, and to have a good time.
He put his body on the line to save the fish from breaking off. I wish I was able to film this... everything was happening in slow motion. Blake stripped slowly and then set the line tight, the fish started sprinting towards the volcanic rock. Knox was going insane, high legging it through the flats to catch up to the fish and then ATE it. It was like a scene from a movie. IT WAS SICK IS ALL I CAN SAY!
Seeing Blake catch the fish wasn’t even the coolest part, the best part was the reaction from everyone. The energy was contagious. Screaming and hollering all around. Tingles running down my spine. This is what I live for. OVERALL TODAY WAS OUTRAGEOUS.
