I've always known that fly fishing's beauty and rhythm could help people feel better, but I never thought to use fly casting in this way.  When I was a counselor, many years ago, I used to work with Autistic kids.  I would take some of them fishing with bobbers and bait, and it was great to see them get excited when they caught a fish.

After several fracking blogs, it's about time to highlight some of the good things in the world.
