He lives in Ithaca, New York. With my fly-fishing experiences, I get to witness and participate in many cycles. I learn the art that I will someday pass on, I realize the cycle of nature and role I play in it, and I have a better understanding of the cycle of nature in general and how everything grows to a peak and then passes its experiences on. There is no better way to observe nature than to enter a stream, catch a fish, release it, and become part of the cycle. 165 b/w photos, 25 drawings, 6 x 9.|
