Attack and Release

By Stio Mountain on

Humans have long relied on nature as a source of comfort, and for fly fisher and chef Ranga Perera, the outdoors have been essential to healing from loss. After moving with his parents to the U.S. from Sri Lanka, Ranga lost his father to an unexpected heart attack. Coping with the loss eventually led him to Montana, where he was drawn to the magic of fly fishing and the solace of the river. Through being in nature and meeting the challenges of his personal journey, he learned the importance of mindfulness and living life with an open heart.
