Lauren Mellor | 28 | Johannesburg, South Africa

I’m from Johannesburg, but my family has always spent a lot of time in a place called Dullstroom, which is a little fly fishing town about three hours north. I started fly fishing when I was about eight, and when I was younger I was really good at it.  I was so passionate about it, and it took so much time and energy learning how to cast properly. As I grew up, I lost that talent.
