Joan Wulff has mentioned this 5 stage evolution in fly fisherman... 1. want to catch a fish. 2. want to catch as many fish as possible. 3. want to catch a big fish. 4. want to catch a fish in the way you wanted. 5. want to be there and fishing. I think I finally sure, the stage 4-5 is what I am now... I had such a great time just watch my friends execute a fishing task. It is like watch a opera play, tension, delicate and with unknown elements in the air, I enjoy every moment of it!
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
