WIVB reported on what might be your newest quarantine hobby -- fly fishing. Taylor Tobias, owner of Buffalo Fly Co, hopes people see fly fishing as a safe, socially distanced way to have fun.

“It’s a great- great quarantine activity or social distancing activity. It’s also just a great way to decompress- be out in nature. You know, if you take a minute to just listen, you don’t hear anything you just hear the babbling of the water if you will. So it’s just really peaceful. It’s a great way to kind of decompress and you know the rhythmic motion of the fly casting it’s just great all around." -Taylor Tobias

If you've never fished before, no worries. The company's approach is meant for beginners. Tobias provides all supplies, from lures to rods to waders, according to WIVB.  

You just need to bring a good attitude. And, a mask.

“All over Western New York are tons of rivers. You know I tend to go to the South Towns but that’s not to say that if somebody was in Batavia or Niagara, you know I wouldn’t go somewhere else for them. I’m very familiar with all of the rivers around here. So I’m more than happy to take them where it kind of meets them in the middle if you will.”
