I have a lot of hobbies and interests. I tie little bits of thread and fur onto hooks and catch fish with them, I competitively tell stories, and I'm trying to visit all 50 states before the end of 2020. 
I've been fly fishing for a long time. I enjoy tying my own flies. Most of the flies are made with feathers and animal hair, some use synthetic materials like rubber. Yes, these actually (sometimes) catch fish.
This is a story I told at the MOTH Story Slam about my experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa. The theme of the night was "detours".
