Throw-Back PR #1...Angling for Good Times

"Angling for Good Times" appeared on the cover of Our Town, Truckee magazine, April-May 1994.

The Healing Art of Fly Fishing was in the issue; authored by Patrick Mooney.  Below are comments I contributed during a phone interview.

"...'Fishing is an excuse to take a walk in nature, cleanse your mind and recharge your thinking...'a total experience' in freestone and freshwater fly angling in the Truckee River...Pisciotta strives to get people 'to relax , have  a great time and enjoy the mountain angling experience'...has recommended the sublime art as a therapeutic tool for one of his clients---a psychiatrist. 'It does wonders for the mental health of harried urbanites'...'enjoy the camaraderie'

It would seem, though, that the real joy Pisciotta gets out of his guide service is not necessarily providing opportunities to people---its the friendships he builds from it. 'I'm a people person basically, and enjoy the challenge of spending a day fishing with people I've never met before'.

They may have been strangers when they hired him , but many of  Frank's clients have become friends because of the shared experience of fly fishing the Sierra together. 'As a mater of fact, I'm having dinner tonight with a couple I guided back in the mid-80''s'  "
