Last weekend I was lucky enough to go on a fishing excursion on Oregon’s Sandy River. A friend of mine and his brother took me out in the wee hours of the morning, 4:00am to be exact. For me that is more of a bed time than an hour I would define as ‘morning’. Nonetheless, I was extremely excited for the day ahead, it had been some time since my last fishing trip and on top of that, they were going to teach me some new methods of fishing.
Going in to the day I had a very simplistic idea of what fishing meant. Line, bait, hook, pole, reel. As we began to fish and I was quickly thrust into a world full of new terms, tools, and etiquette, I attempted to soak up and remember as much as I could. I realized that it had been a really long time since I had been this far out of my comfort zone.
The experience reminded me that my own knowledge is very relevant to what I do and what I hope to do in the future. While that is a good thing, it also reminded me that I need to get out there more often and learn something new. I have new goals that involve being uncomfortable and feeling lost more often. They also involve seeking the specialized knowledge of those that surround me. People have varying, amazing passions that lead them into incredible different worlds full of knowledge and experience and I want to tap into that.
