Fly Fishing for a Year?

Fly fish 52 rivers over a year? Well, an angler recently did that.

Shelley Walchak quit her job, bought a mini-camper, and fished multiple times a week for an entire year. She did a ton of research and targeted a different river each week for a year.

I recently heard about it via the “Ask About Fly Fishing” podcast. It’s fun to think about a year filled with fishing. Shelley said that she enjoyed every minute of it.
