Do you love spending time in nature - Either with full speed ahead or quiet contemplation. Imagine this: "The mist lies thick as a blanket across the river valley, and the sun has begun to break through the clouds low on the horizon. There is complete silence apart from the tweets of the birds in the trees. Until, all of a sudden a fish appears at the surface just behind the fly, and a few seconds after you pull of the fishing line! The angling experience doesn’t get any better than this." Find the nature experience that suits your temper.
