It's an amazing MCZ museum, I have learned new things everyday! There are many reasons to have a good museum around, scientific research has been the most important one, but over years, I have learned that people and the visitors are the central element in the museum. This place have presented the wonderful nature in a series of time frame. the more people appreciate about it, the more power we will going to have to preserve the wild.
every now and then we seems lost in those technical view of flyfishing... but really... bamboo, fiberglass, graphite, large arbor or whatsoever... it's all boil down to the essence of flyfishing... the river... the flow and the outdoors... it's like a river run through your life... let it come, let it go and if you will, capture a glimpse of the beautiful light when you encounter during the journey.
Fly casting is a great combination of art and science! seeing the line goes out effortlessly and wonder around the science behind the beautiful loop. I just love them all! working out some physics this morning and felt I am a competed angler now... : ) more physics please!!
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.
