For many of us, doing things alone is unfathomable – going out to eat dinner, seeing movies, going bowling, or even going to Disneyland. For a lot of us, the idea of doing things alone seems depressing and sad, fishing experiences included. Many of us are self-conscious about being alone. Here’s the thing, doing things alone is good for your soul, and going on fly fishing experiences, especially lodges alone, is remarkable.
Four Reasons You should to a fishing lodge, Solo:
One – You’re free from expectations – When it comes to being alone, it’s not a matter of being isolated from other people; it’s more separation from all the “normality” and sans expectations of people you usually do things with – your clique, your buddies, your friends, your family.
Two- You’ll be free of the limitations and obligations of others in your group – How often have you not done something or gone somewhere or eaten something because others in your group didn’t want to or couldn’t?
Three – You’ll be more open to trying things you’ve never done – You might be your own worst enemy. how many times have you not done something because you didn’t want to go yourself? You thought to yourself it won’t be “as fun?”
The Fourth Reason – You’ll learn to appreciate your friends and family. They say distance makes the heart grow fonder. When you go away from normality, you quickly learn all the things you appreciate about it. The quirks, habits, and processes of your everyday life. That’s why we often say “ah, no place like home” after a trip.
Going solo gives you freedom and opens up opportunities you usually wouldn’t have. No restrictions, no limitations, and radiates possibility. You meet people you may not typically have met. You see things with a clear conscience. There is something refreshing and liberating about going on a fly fishing trip to a lodge alone.
Whether going to a movie, eating out, bowling to Disneyland, or a fly fishing trip, going it alone can be a very edifying experience. Make your next fly fishing trip a little more reclusive and open up yourself to more possibilities. Don’t be afraid to go it alone.
