Here is some love for all of you Catholics out there:
|From the Federation aka IFFF|
I am sure God doesn’t play favorites…but if he did…fly fishers would be at the top of the list. Clearly we get to experience a purity in creation that few others do. Even when we make a huge mess of it we still get to return to the waters again. Yes, occasionally we, as a group, disrupt the sanctuary of the river with a few too many river sodas, or some rowdy and loud conversation but that is part of the beauty of it all. The river welcomes us, as we are, and its bounty is available to anyone who knows how to fly fish and maybe a handful of others. The subject of this post is a Sister with a fly rod whose self described start in the sport clearly defines her as a Fly Fishing Junkie. Sister if you read this, that is a compliment.
Sister Carol Anne Corley from Hot Springs, Arkansas is a teacher St. John’s Catholic Elementary. She is also a member of the International Federation of Fly Fishers and within the IFFF she is on the Fly Tiers Group Board of Governors. Here is her BIO.
At St. John’s she teaches Fly Tying as part of the art curriculum. Far surpassing Luke’s efforts to incorporate fly tying in his classroom.
There is a great article about her on Arkansas Catholic dot ORG.
