The way of the /:Fly:/ according to Aleksandar Vrtaric
Some people are addicted to drugs, some to alcohol, cigarettes, shopping, religion or gambling and some are addicted to fly fishing. Well, hello there! My name is Aleksandar Vrtaric and I am a fly fishing addict. To me, fly fishing is an amazing prism that breaks into many different colors, a passion and a game. Like any other addiction, fly fishing it is a way to cope, to hide and escape, to feel happy, satisfied and fulfilled and to belong.
Of course, having my camera along makes it even more fun and I am having great times trying to capture the sweetes addiction with all its parts and stages. It may be a fish, it may be an angler, it may be me, it may be an insect, a carefully tied fly or a unique scenery – being a fly angler means that you are constantly surrounded by inspiration and being a true addict normally means you want more. I am and addict. Do I want to be cured? Hell, no!!! I want more!!!
