New on Our To-Experience List: Fly Fishing!

Fly fishing, an adventure activity both solitary and social, is calling us. Here are top recs for where to go.

Inspired by our cover story with Libby DeLana, we are putting rookie fly fishing on our to-experience list. We are called by the wide open waters, and the fact that fly fishing can be intensely solitary and wonderfully social at the same time. Plus, doesn’t it look like she’s having a good time?

Recommendations From our Adventurists

To make sure we start off right, we asked for recommendations from out intrepid network. Their top two picks:

  1. What I absolutely love about fly fishing, is that pretty much everyone has a river nearby he can fly fish at! No need to get a boat or find a larger body of water :D
