Darrin Schenck is an avid fly fisherman and the head coach of the Arizona State University racquetball team. We had originally planned to talk mostly about his recent fishing trip to Utah and Idaho. When the fishing success turned out to be less than expected, we decided to switch gears a bit and branch out more in the conversation. What followed was a discussion of what happens when the fishing is lackluster, some of the better trips Darrin has been on, and how he makes the most of the time he has left to fish with his father. I also got to hear about how his favorite fish isn’t the biggest one he has caught, and why the best memories don’t always correspond to the measurements of the fish itself. Near the end, we also get into the pros and cons of trying to turn fishing into a career. All in all, it was a rich and thought-provoking conversation that took some really enjoyable turns.
