RIT professor emeritus authors book on therapeutic benefits of fly fishing

Penfield, New York -For a local writer and scholar, there is no place to find peaceful places than one of his favorite Diaoyu Creek streams.

If everything is really merged into one, then for Pat Scanlon, a small stream will run through it.

Sanlun said: "I think many of them are peace." "You lost time. It seems that time is suspended. You may suddenly realize that you have done this for three hours, but you don’t know."

SCANLON has been fishing and fishing for 35 years.He liked it very much, so that the honorary professor of RIT School of Communication wrote a book about it.It is called "casting and repairing: how to cure crushing thinking and body of the healing flies."

Scanlon said: "I just look for the idea of flying fishing. I encountered all the different plans for using flying fishing as the treatment."

He discovered a group such as rehabilitation, which provided a quiet repair for the survivors of breast cancer. 

He interviewed cancer, addiction and PTSD.

Scanlon said: "I found that this did change their lives, which was a way to return them to them a sense of control and peace. It just grabbed me."

In novels and movies, there are certain myths around the romance of fly fishing.

Scanlon said: "Some people think it is mysterious and amazing, which seems a little bit a little bit a bit of me."

His own book questioned the therapeutic ability of fishing.Scholars and natural skepticists, he found something in the research process.

SCANLON said: "It turns out that it actually has some solid science." "I found that there are many things in common between these different programs, and these fishing and fishing have changed the life of the men and women."

SCANLON is called "flow": a kind of experience makes a person stronger, more confident and updated.

He said that fish do not always want what you want.

SCANLON said: "It is in such a place, especially in the flowing place, especially in the flowing water. I think these things together make them a very powerful treatment experience."

Adventures with Alan tackles fly fishing for the first time

In our exclusive series of adventures with Alan and Alan, we will cross the south of Colorado every week to show you stimulus and chills, hidden gems and famous attractions.

For this adventure, we will guide our inner Brad Pitt in the 1990s’s movie classic "a river".

However, our sight is not Montana, but on the Southern River on the beautiful 11 -mile canyon.

It’s time to fish

Our adventure guidelines are Phil Tereyla, together with Covey of the COLORADO Springs.

After matching boots and wading to help us dry, we entered the river.

In this beautiful autumn morning, water is crystal cool … This is where our guidance begins.

In flying fishing, use artificial flies to capture fish.

Tereyla tells us that this allows them to eat as usual in a more natural environment.

Tereyla said, "All these fish are upstream.

This is adventurous and relaxed, but it needs to be as patient as all other forms of fishing.

Tereyla said, "(If) the indicator is always below, if it blinles is interesting … Nothing looks like something that floats on the water, we will hang up."

By fixing the hook, he refers to the movement of fast downstream tie rods.

This will make the flies enter the corner of the fish’s mouth.

Soon after learning the basic knowledge and drawing some spots, we hooked the first fish.

However, due to a slow set, the fish escaped.

After the initial strike, we encountered a dry spell.

The coolness and dark conditions may be partial.

Keep the original state, we have been casting until … we hook another fish!

Once I started working hard, this guy … he left.

In order to update you, that will::

Fish: 2
Allen: 0

At this point, I signed in with Tereyla to find out what I did right and what I did wrong.

Tereyla said: "So the actor lineup is great. Your hook suit is great and in the right direction. Our hook suit may be a bit slow."

When we are near lunch time, the temperature and warm temperature are helping bring more flies.

Tereyla tells us that the better, the better he is, he is right!

As more flies landed on the water, the fish seemed to be more sensitive, and we began to see more movements.

After several close phone calls (hooks), we rolled up in the first Cutbow of the day!

After putting on some photos of celebration and a fish, it was time to release it back to the river.

This is the rules of the Soutlart.

We don’t want to resign, we have been staying for a longer time until we get involved in the second fish of a day, it is bigger than the first!

The final score at the end of our day:

Fish: 2
Allen: 2

That’s it, I was fascinated …

For the first timer, I couldn’t say enough for my first fishing fishing.

I want to thank our guidaries to the Covey’s Covey’s Phil Tereyla to take us to the river and show us a wonderful time.
