"I talk about it in terms of art: A good painting has all these ways that you can access it. Maybe it's color, maybe it's history, maybe it's the style, or even the image itself." Spire continues, "Fly fishing is like that. It's got all these ways that you can get into it. If you just like bugs. Or the fish as food. Or the elegance of casting. Or the equipment, like tying your own flies. Or just spending days on a stream. There are so many entry paths to enjoying the sport." —Edible Hudson Valley, Spring 2018
