Will Loftus

About
Will Loftus ~ Will is a North Carolina native with a life-long interest in the outdoors, and a commitment to the responsible enjoyment of the natural world.  Will came to fly fishing after spending time rock climbing, working as a white water rafting guide, serving in AmeriCorps with inner-city children in Atlanta, and assisting with Mountain Challenge, at Maryville College, which provides a wide range of outdoor experiences for young and old, individuals and corporate groups.  In his spare time, he enjoys fly tying, and looking for ways to make them just a little more attractive to sophisticated, picky fish.

As well as being relaxing and a lot of fun, Will shares the opinion of Christopher Rownes in “The Perfect Loop,” where he says that fly fishing “stands for values such as respect for nature, for tolerance, tranquility, self-composure, the ability to enjoy, and a readiness for measure and self-contemplation….the rivers keep us humble…and the trout teach us gratitude.”

In addition to being great fun, whether you’re fishing alone, with family, or with a group of friends or co-workers, you lose yourself in nature, in the river, in the cast, and in the competition with the fish.  Whether you’re a beginner or an old hand, fly fishing can be whatever you want it to be — exciting or relaxing, a challenge to be faced, or a Zen moment to be appreciated.

Like a complex corporate problem, fly fishing requires that you, the river, the rod, the fly, the weather, and the cast all come together in just the right way to produce the result you want — everything from quiet satisfaction to sweet success, and all the space in between!

Thanks so much for a wonderful time with you and your beautiful birds the other day! I asked them (the girls) what they liked best about the weekend and they both immediately said… the hawks!
