Anybody who’s anybody knows that Cody Townsend can shred lines like nobody’s business. That’s because it is his business. And he loves it. But what you may not know is that in addition to being a baller skier, Cody can also tear it up with a fly rod.
Cody has been on planks since he was two years old, but he didn’t start fly fishing until much later in life with some buddies from Montana who lived near him in Tahoe. Townsend talks about the serenity he feels and how he’s at peace with nature when he’s out in the wilderness, scouring for trout.
“Skiing and fly fishing both take you away from people and out into nature. There’s a lot of focus involved. In fly fishing, you have to be in tune with what’s going on around you—what the bugs are doing, what the water’s doing, trying to think where the fish are going to be. It’s just like skiing a line, where you’ve got to think about your sluff, your airs, and your exposure.” –Cody Townsend
Now that spring is here, you’ll find Cody Town-SENDING it with a rod in his hand and a fish in his net, getting his fishing fix this 2012 season.
