When was the last time you let it fly across New Mexico’s sparkling and expansive Pecos River? The Pecos begins on the western slopes of the breathtaking Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and winds for almost a thousand miles to the Rio Grande. But on a serene 20-mile stretch, the National Wild and Scenic River designation invites fishermen of all skill levels to let go, of both their lines and their worries, to immerse themselves into the outdoors for an adventure unlike any other.
“It requires an understanding that every conversation, every gathering, and every memory will send ripples out into the unit, and they’ll resonate long after your visit has ended.”
Would you describe a day with your family the same way? Consider this: A successful fly fisherman barely grazes the surface of the water as he flicks his line using a delicate balance of both purpose and finesse. Each time the fly connects with the river, it sends out a ripple that lasts as long as there is water to see – a tiny brief moment, resulting in long, lasting effects. It’s the same with families. In much the same way as fly fishing, nurturing relationships with your family, and keeping a close-knit unit, requires that same delicate balance of purpose and finesse. It requires an understanding that every conversation, every gathering, and every memory will send ripples out into the unit, and they’ll resonate long after your visit has ended.
What kind of ripples are your family sending? Learning the finesse of fly-fishing takes practice, patience, and dedication. It also requires forgiveness and grace. Do you see where we’re going with this? So, how can you instill the idea of practice into a family’s time together? How do you stay consistent on building relationships and spending quality time together that helps you grow as a unit? A family reunion packed with quality time and exciting adventures that bring everyone together creates the kind of ripples that fill your future with positive energy, builds even stronger relationships – friendships, even – with the ones you love and ignites a respect for generations that helps build pride in the family name.
“often the best memories are made when you least expect it”
While being together is the priority at a family reunion, it’s also a delicate balance to make plans that accommodate a wide range of interests and abilities. Remember that while having a plan is important, often the best memories are made when you least expect it — much like that first time you get a bite.
