All in the Water
Sometimes fishing isn't about the fish at all, it's about the people and why they step into the water to cast to a rising trout.
Many people from many walks of life come to the water and the water offers peace with no judgment, That is a powerful thing in this day and age. Water is also a- mystery. Somehow it provides whatever someone is seeking, it’s endless really, but somehow water always provides. However, not everyone gets to chase their dreams around water. Just as manmade barriers exist that are harmful to trout and salmon, so too are fly fishing and outdoor dreams complicated by barriers of exclusion.
Some fly anglers are achieving their fishing dreams, while also working to eradicate or disrupt barriers that are harming humans. Barriers like gender, age, race, physical ability, and access to fishable waters. All in the Water raises the volume on those stories.
