MY STORY

Hi… Thanks for stopping by! My name is Ann, I am a sixty plus woman living in Canada.
Retired after thirty-four years at a physical job, I’m finally living the dream I’ve had since a young woman, to learn the art of fly-fishing.
Living in the country by a lake as a child I was always outdoors with the animals and learnt how to fish at a very young age. I never fit in with girls doing girl things.  I wanted to be out by the creek catching minnows or sitting on oil drums by the lake at dusk catching big catfish. I was a wild child raised alone with no siblings, the farm animals were my friends.
As an adult, I spent my life as a metropolitan dweller, weekend trips to the cabin at the lake was my new wild. But a part of me, at the deep core level, always longed for the exploration of new places.
It took forty plus years to find the old me again. Since retirement, I have explored new lakes and rivers to fish and camped in many beautiful places.
I want to share with you some of my experiences so you can see it’s never too late to change the course of your life.

“As a spiritual person, nature for me has always been a healing place. Going back all the way to my childhood on the farm, the fields and forests were places of adventure and self-discovery. Animals were companions and friends, and the world moved at a slower, more rational pace than the bustling cities where I’d resided my adult life.”
