Flyfishers are Masochists!
Fishing could be quite easy, however flyfishers seem to be masochists as they make this a difficult sport. Flyfishing is the king of pastimes. The most popular sport in the world, it captures the imagination of tens of millions throughout the world and many a family are slaves to the weekend fishing expedition. Whether it is a simple, gentle trip to the local pond or river to tickle the trout or just dangle a rod in the water on a sunny afternoon in a beautiful spot or a high-tech venture on an expensive, technologically equipped boat with the latest gear and accessories, it is a pastime that offers rich satisfaction to many. It can be a complex, sophisticated matter as well with knowledge of species, locations, techniques and equipment all playing a part in mastering the duel between man and beast. Dedicated players take it all very seriously - and spend a lot of time on money on their pursuit. But for many it is just a great excuse to be out in the open, in beautiful countryside, relaxing - and maybe having a few beers and sandwiches! Michael Marcovici was born in Vienna in 1969.
